Puerto Rico Gov.-elect Luis Fortuño plans to announce additional top government appointments in the coming weeks, including the next treasury secretary and six individuals to serve on the Government Development Bank for Puerto Rico’s board of directors.

The incoming governor, a member of the New Progressive Party, has already nominated Banco Santander of Puerto Rico president Carlos M. Garcia as the GDB’s next president, replacing the outgoing Jorge Irizarry. The bank’s new board will vote on the Garcia nomination when the new administration begins in early January.
