Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Mexican President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto announced a series of measures to reshuffle the nation’s ministries, including the creation of a new anti-corruption agency.

Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, will propose in the lower house reducing the number of ministries to 16 from 18 as part of an initiative to improve government efficiency and performance, he said during a press conference today in Mexico City.

The nation’s Interior Ministry would take control of security matters and a new ministry dealing with urban and agrarian development would be created, Pena Nieto said, speaking alongside his party’s leaders in both chambers of Congress.

The new anti-corruption agency, to be proposed in the Senate, would replace the Public Function Ministry, he said.
