Green party reject offer to lead education and science ministries

Jan 13, 2014
From wire reports, RIGA

Latvia’s Union of Greens and Farmers political party have rejected an offer to lead the countries next education and science ministries. 

The decision came following talks with Prime Minister designate Laimdota Straujuma on Jan. 13. Officials explained that the reason behind decision is that the Education Ministry should be manned by a professional, and there is no such person in their ranks.

Talks are currently underway in Latvia over which political parties will run the next government. 

On Jan. 14, the Greens/Farmers are scheduled to meet with the Unity party on the overall division of Cabinet offices.

Straujuma, meanwhile, has planned for the Greens/Farmers to also head the Welfare and Agriculture Ministries, and take the parliamentary secretary office at the Environmental Protection/Regional Development Ministry.
