Latvian defense minister set for PM role

Dec 03, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Latvian defense minister Artis Pabriks could be set to become the countries new Prime Minister, reports LETA.

It follows after Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis announced his resignation in November following the Riga supermarket collapse that left 54 dead and dozens injured.

Dombrovskis said he was taking political responsibility for the disaster.

Pabriks is one of the candidates put forward by the Unity political party. Other candidates include MEP Krisjanis Karins and the PM's advisor and former culture minister, Ints Dalderis.

Following the Coalition Council's meeting tonight, Dombrovskis told members of the press that Unity is prepared to set up and lead the new government.

The coalition partners appear to support the plan for a broader coalition, inviting the Greens/Farmers back to the Cabinet.
