BC, Riga, 27.03.2014.Print version
Today, Latvian Saeima confirmed MP Romans Naudins (All for Latvia!-For Fatherland and Freedom/LNNK) as the new environmental protection and regional development minister, informs LETA.

Until now, Naudins also served as the Environmental Protection and Regional Development Ministry''s parliamentary secretary.

 

The politician previously stated that his main priorities as minister will be cooperation with local governments, as well as promoting business activities in the regions.


As reported, VL-TB/LNNK decided last week to put forward Naudins for the vacant environmental protection and regional development minister post.

 

Einars Cilinskis, who was forced to step down as environmental protection and regional development minister earlier this month, could, in turn, become the ministry's parliamentary secretary.

 

LETA also reported, Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma (Unity) called for the resignation of Cilinskis earlier this month after he had confirmed to her personally that he did not intend to adhere to the government decision and would participate in March 16 events by the Freedom Monument.
