    Gobzems plans to propose "professional government", reducing number of ministers

    RIGA, Dec 7 (LETA) – Prime minister nominee Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV) has withdrawn his initial proposal for the Cabinet of Ministers and in the coming days will propose "a government of non-partisan professionals", Gobzems told LETA.

    Also, Gobzems plans to reduce the number of ministers, returning to the promises given by KPV LV during the election campaign. KPV LV before the elections promised to cut the number of ministries down to six.

    Today he will inform the remaining partners in the coalition – the New Conservative Party (JKP), the Union of Greens and Farmers, the National Alliance and the New Unity - about his plans.

    Some candidates have already agreed to work in Gobzems’ government, some others have not yet given their answers, Gobzems said.

    Today the politician will meet with the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Latvian Employers Confederation to discuss the possible candidates for ministers. Gobzems expects also the society to engage in formation of a professional government.

    Gobzems said he hopes parties will support his proposal and prove their readiness to work for the state.

    In case his plan is rejected, he will call on President Raimonds Vejonis to launch a procedure for new parliament elections.

    As reported, prime minister nominee Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV) on Friday plans to present "plan B" to his partners in government formation.
