Spanish term or phrase:Proyecto de intervención
Proyecto de Intervención del Sr. Ministro.
And how do you say Sra. Presidenta in english? Ms or Mrs President?
Explanation: As a rule, public persons have their personal secretaries and assistants prepare the draft of what they are going to say in public, the resulting proposal then being the draft of the address or speech; I would strongly recommend you use ADDRESS. Since you are not sure the lady is married or not, I would suggest you use Ms President. Good luck!

Explanation: ... and "Sra. Presidenta" is always, formally and correctly, "Madam President."
You could, however, use "remarks" or "address" in place of "speech," depending on the nature of the occasion.
If the speech etc. is still in the draft stage and hasn't been made yet, you could use the future tense: "the draft of the speech to be made by the Minister." If the text refers to a speech that's already been given, then you could write "the draft of the speech that was made by the Minister."
Whew. Time to sign off for the weekend...!
