Latvian Cabinet reshuffle confirmed by Saeima votes

The Latvian coalition government, which now consists of four parties, managed to appoint new ministers on 3 June.

As a result of the ejection of the KPV LV party from the previous five-party coalition and a parallel move to oust Education Minister Ilga Shuplinska from her own party, several new appointments were made.

Marija Golubeva (Development/For!) becomes Minister of the Interior, Janis Vitenbergs (National Alliance) returns as Minister of Economics after defecting from KPV LV, and Shuplinska (New Conservatives) is replaced by party colleague Anita Muizhniece.

Shuplinska has said she is leaving the New Conservatives.
