Wanda Vázquez sworn in as new Puerto Rico governor
By Rafael Bernal - 08/07/19 05:42 PM EDT

Puerto Rico Secretary of Justice Wanda Vázquez Garced has been sworn in as the territory's third governor, days after the island's Supreme Court invalidated the previous successor's appointment.

As secretary of justice, Vázquez was next in line for the governorship behind Pedro Pierluisi, the then-secretary of state who was left in power when former Gov. Ricardo Rosselló stepped down last Friday.

But Pierluisi's appointment was invalidated Wednesday by the court, which ordered him to step down by 5 p.m. Vázquez said shortly after the ruling that she was prepared to take over as governor; she was sworn in later Wednesday.
