There disagreement in Latvia's ruling coalition over who'll be the next head of the country's revenue service as the Unity party is against appointing State Environmental Service's head Inga Koļegova as the new director of the State Revenue Service.

Following a meeting between party members and Koļegova, Unity leader Andris Piebalgs told the press that the party does not support her candidacy and called for new candidates to be named for the position, reported LETA Monday.

While National Alliance will ask its ministers to support Koļegova's candidacy, provided that her performance would be assessed one year later.
