Colombia's Cabinet resigns to allow Santos to make shuffle
BOGOTA (Reuters) - Sixteen members of Colombia's Cabinet presented their resignations to President Juan Manuel Santos on Monday to pave the way for changes he may want to make after a protest in the farming sector turned violent last week.
The Cabinet also offered its full support to Santos, according to a statement read by the president's secretary general, Aurelio Iragorri. The resignation is a matter of protocol before a Cabinet shuffle.
