Former Economics Minister Vitenbergs returns to the Saeima

On Thursday, May 20, the Saeima renewed the mandate of former Economics Minister Jānis Vitenbergs (National Alliance).

Vitenbergs was elected in the 13th Saeima, and he has asked for the renewal of the parliamentary mandate since he  ceased his duties as Minister for Economic Affairs on May 14.

Vitenbergs now takes the position as the parliamentary secretary of the Economics Ministry, LETA reported. 

Thus, Aivars Geidāns concludes the work in parliament, who joined the Saeima in April last year for a period of time while deputies elected from KPV LV are fulfilling Minister duties. 

The decision by Jānis Vitenbergs, elected by KPV LV, to join the National Alliance led to talks on the reallocation of positions within the coalition.

The coalition has currently agreed to suspend negotiations until after municipal elections that will be held on June 5.
