(NEW YORK POST) – Puerto Ricans on Thursday cheered scandal-ridden Gov. Ricardo Rosselló's announcement that he will resign shortly – but many insisted that they will continue protesting if his tapped successor takes office.
Justice Secretary Wanda Vázquez, 59, is next in line for Puerto Rico's highest office because of a key vacancy in the U.S. territory's chain of succession and is expected to take office when Rosselló steps down Aug. 2.
Crowds erupted in boos when rally leaders reminded them that the embattled governor would be replaced by Vázquez – and the hashtag #WandaRenuncia – or "Wanda Resign – began trending.
