Lula changes Cabinet

In an attempt to gain more political support in Congress, President Lula is changing Ministries.
To attract PMDB, the largest Brazilian Party, Lula is giving them two new Ministries (and replacing another Ministry who had already been appointed by PMDB). New Ministers are Saraiva Felipe (Health) and Silas Rondeau (Mines and Energy); the new Minister of Communications is Helio Costa, also PMDB.
Lula also appointed Luiz Marinho as the new Minister of Labor. Marinho is President of CUT, the largest Union Central in Brazil.
