The political crisis in Puerto Rico continues as its Senate has sued against the appointment of Pedro Pierluisi.
Pierluisi was appointed as the new governor following Ricardo Rosselló’s resignation last week.
Pierluisi was sworn in despite not having been confirmed by the Puerto Rican Senate.
But he argues that he is in the line of succession for governor after being nominated as secretary of state by Rosselló last week. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz also sued after his swearing-in.
