Gustavo Béliz resigned from his position in the national government (Presidency)

In the midst of the expectation for the changes in the Cabinet, the first departure was confirmed. Gustavo Beliz presented his resignation to President Alberto Fernández. The now former Secretary of Strategic Affairs personally informed the Head of State of his resignation during a meeting held this Thursday at Casa Rosada.

Beliz was one of the officials closest to the President and during his administration he assumed various tasks, including the direction of the Economic and Social Council.

The resignation was confirmed in the midst of versions about other changes in the Public administration, which would include the formation of a new super ministry on which the Economy, Production and Agriculture would depend.

For now, Alberto Fernández met for two hours with the current Economy Minister, Silvina Batakis, who landed this morning in Buenos Aires after holding meetings in Washington with the United States Treasury and the International Monetary Fund.

Being a lawyer and journalist, Beliz began his political life at the hands of Carlos Menem. He had had his time in journalism in the magazine The graphic and then in the diary The reason. She was one of the young promises during the first presidency of the Riojan when he began to write her speeches. He became Secretary of the Civil Service and was later appointed Minister of the Interiora position he held until 1993.

Later he left the PJ and founded his party, New leadership. Through this new political sign, he competed in the City of Buenos Aires, where was elected to a seat in the Legislature in the late 1990s. At that time she met again Alberto Fernandez, whom he had met at law school when they were both studying law. There they resumed the relationship.

Some years later, Beliz returned to the Casa Rosada to occupy in 2003 the Ministry of Justice during the presidency of Néstor Kirchner.

After serving in that position, the now former official moved away from political life and the country: he moved to the United States. In exile he obtained He worked in Washington, first at the OAS and later at the IDB, and wrote several books about the policies he worked on during the years he was away from Argentina.

He also lived in Uruguay for a few years and only returned to the country in 2015. He had an offer to return to politics from Elisa Carrió, but he rejected it. Finally, After the 2019 PASO elections, he received a call from Alberto Fernández and they got together. It was at that moment that they talked about the possibility of working together.

On December 6 of that year he was confirmed as Secretary of Strategic Affairs, a position in which he assumed four days later together with the President and the entire new cabinet. From that place, as mentioned, he became one of the collaborators with the closest relationship with Alberto Fernández. In fact, he was one of the officials who were present at the Quinta de Olivos to decide the steps to follow after the resignation of the Ministry of Economy by Martín Guzmán.

This situation led to the arrival of Silvina Batakis at the Palacio de Hacienda, although the economic and political crisis did not abate. Quite the contrary. For this reason, at this time Alberto Fernández is evaluating changes in the Cabinet. Among other measures, the national president is evaluating the creation of a “super ministry” that will encompass those of Economy, Productive Development, Agriculture and will manage the relationship with multilateral organizations. Control of the new area would be offered to the until now head of the Chamber of Deputies, Serge Massa.
