Supreme Court Clears The Way For Puerto Rico's New Governor Wanda Vazquez

Puerto Rico got its third governor in less than a week on Wednesday, August 7, Reuters reports.

The U.S. territory’s supreme court ruled that Pedro Pierluisi’s assumption of the office was unconstitutional and ordered him to leave.

The island’s justice secretary, Wanda Vazquez, was sworn in as governor at the supreme court in San Juan.

A unanimous decision by the nine-member high court nullified Pierluisi’s governorship.
