SUSANA Diaz has become president of the Junta after José Antonio Griñán resigned this summer.
The 39-year-old makes history as the first woman president.
Both her party, the socialist PSOE, and their coalition partners left-wing Izquierda Unida (IU), were supporting Diaz and her call to fight corruption from the beginning.
José Antonio Griñán resignation came at the time the ERE scandal threatened to ruin his career. Although not formally accused, he is being questioned about his part in the 140million fraud case.
The new president promised to maintain Griñán’s idea of a government open to the people and promised to allow opposition groups to question and analyse her progress in special parliamentary debates every six months.
