Chile's Bachelet Changes Tack With New Cabinet Amid Crisis

In shaking up her entire Cabinet, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet is trying to salvage an ambitious reform package amid growing scandals and contain a political crisis. Bachelet surprised the country late Wednesday by announcing she had asked for the resignations of all her ministers and in the coming days would work on building a new team. The president's party controls both chambers of Congress but her agenda has hit obstacles such as a slowing economy, the lowest approval ratings of her political career and a string of corruption scandals.
