4 Brazilian ministers resign

Brazil reelects president Rousseff to second term 
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Four Brazilian ministers resigned Wednesday to give way for a new government to be formed by newly re-elected President Dilma Rousseff.

Minister of the Presidency Aloizio Mercadante, Minister of Development and Foreign Trade Mauro Borges, Minister of Labor Manoel Dias and Minister of Strategic Affairs Marcelo Neri announced their intentions to quit so that Rousseff can line up a new team more easily.

Rousseff said Wednesday in Qatar that all cabinet ministers were required to inform her whether they planned to stay or go.

Culture Minister Marta Suplicy quit her post Tuesday, claiming disagreement with the president on economic policies.
