HistoryEdit

Upon his assumption to office, Ballivián charged all ministerial portfolios to Division General José María Pérez de Urdininea, as minister general pending the formation of a proper ministerial cabinet. A full council of ministers was appointed on 18 October 1841, 21 days late, composed of three ministers. The Ministry of Public Instruction remained vacant for over a year before being reestablished on 4 November 1842. At the same time, the office of foreign affairs was reassigned from the interior to the instruction portfolio.

Two future presidents and one former president, José María Pérez de Urdininea (1828), Eusebio Guilarte (1847–1848), and Tomás Frías (1872–1873; 1874–1876) were members of this cabinet.
