MEXICO CITY – President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico will rely on a mix of the old guard from the country's long-ruling party and new technocrats to run his administration.
Transition team leader Miguel Angel Osorio Chong says he will take the top position of secretary of the interior. Pena Nieto campaign chairman Luis Videgaray will run the treasury.
Pena Nieto will focus heavily on boosting the economy and reducing violence that has swelled under Mexico's offensive against drug cartels.
The Cabinet designations announced by Osorio Chong on Friday reflect those priorities.
Pena Nieto will be sworn in Saturday morning.
