The future Minister of Youth is the son of Senator Óscar "Cachito" Salomón. When approached by journalists, Felipe said, "We are now available. I represent the political class. I am representing all Paraguayan youth. I am going to meet with Magalí (Cáceres), we will continue to give scholarships. We are going to reach the last corner of Paraguay, even that young man who suddenly does not have the ticket or to buy pens, "he said.
He added that "there are many young unemployed, then we will try to train them, seek an agreement with the SNPP (National Sevice for National Promotion), with the government, and try to find opportunities for young people," he concluded.
