Straujuma marks first 100 days in office

Apr 24, 2014
From wire reports, RIGA

Zanda Kalnina-Lukasevica, leader of the Saeima group of Latvia’s Reform Party, believes that the main achievements of Laimdota Straujuma's (Unity) government during the first 100 days in office include achieving the deployment of the U.S. troops in Latvia and measures against psychoactive drugs, reports LETA.

Straujuma's is a government of succession, which has been efficiently continuing projects initiated by the previous Cabinet of Ministers. The government is made up of professional ministers, who did not need to get accustomed to work in the government. Kalnina-Lukasevica would not compare the performance of Straujuma's government to that of a newly elected government, because several ministers from Valdis Dombrovskis' (Unity) government continue work in the current government.

The Reform Party has several ministries in the government, and they are very active, for example, the contribution of Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics (Reform Party) is clearly visible with the arrival of 150 U.S. troops in Latvia. The Ministry of the Interior has been actively working on measures against new psychoactive substances, and achieved that distribution of such substances is now considered a criminal offense, Kalnina-Lukasevica stressed.

The Ministry of Economy is working on the establishment of a new Construction Management Department and on the power industry policies. All three Reform Party ministers were active members of the Dombrovskis government, and they continue active work in the current government as well.

One hundred days have passed since Straujuma became the prime minister. Her government was confirmed on Jan. 22, after her predecessor Dombrovskis announced his resignation following the Zolitude Maxima shopping center tragedy.
