Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez is poised to name lower house Speaker Sergio Massa as the country’s new economy minister, appointing a second person for the job in less than a month, according to local newspaper Clarin.

He would replace Silvina Batakis, who took office on July 4 after the abrupt resignation of Martin Guzman, the newspaper reported on Wednesday, without naming its sources.
