    Gobzems offers New Conservative Party most ministerial posts, but on condition it agrees to join government with Greens/Farmers

    RIGA, Dec 4 (LETA) - The president's nominated prime minister candidate Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV) has offered the New Conservative Party the greatest number of ministerial posts in the next government, but only on condition it agrees to join a government with the Union of Greens and Farmers, according to information obtained by LETA.

    KPV LV itself wishes three seats in the new Cabinet - Gobzems as prime minister, Roberts Sprucs as finance minister and MP Ralfs Nemiro as interior minister.

    The New Conservative Party has been offered to head four ministries - Talis Linkaitis as transport minister, Juris Jurass as health minister, Dagmara Beitnere-La Gall as education minister, and either Janis Bordans or Juta Strike as justice minister.

    Gobzems foresees three ministerial posts for the National Alliance - Raivis Dzintars or Rihards Kols as environmental protection and regional development minister, Imants Paradnieks as welfare minister, and Dace Melbarde as the minister of culture.

    The Union of Greens and Farmers and New Unity will be allocated two ministerial posts in the next government, according to Gobzems - Edgars Tavars or Raimonds Krauze could head the Agriculture Minister, while Raimonds Bergmanis - the Defense Ministry. Meanwhile, Edgars Rinkevics from New Unity would stay on as foreign minister, and Janis Reirs would serve as economy minister.
