Assembly approves creation of two new ministries.
With 65 votes in favor, 20 against and one abstention, the Parliament of Nicaragua decided to create the Ministry of Women and the Youth Ministry, at the request of the Executive.
Nicaragua currently has six million inhabitants. Of this, 50.7% are women and 73% of the total population is under 30, according to the National Institute of Information and Development.
The doubts of the deputies who voted against revolved around whether Nicaragua needs these ministries.
