The new Governor of Puerto Rico have arrived with bringing a new controversy to the US territory.
Protesters have already covered the justice secretary, days after Ricardo Rossello said he would step down as governor of Puerto Rico.
Ricardo Rossello had resigned amid mass protests over a leaked chat in which he and top aides shared obscenity-laced messages and Pedro Pierluisi came as the successor of Rossello.
But, doubts have raised regarding the term of Mr Pierluisi as governor, since the official confirmation has not yet been received from island’s Senate.
His appointment has been termed unconstitutional, by the critics.
Mr Pierluisi, in his inaugural speech said that he was “he was “fully capable and authorised to act, but the Senate will have its say”.
