The exact phrasing Reizniece-Ozola used was that Kalvītis began "sharpening his daggers" upon hearing that someone else might be taking over the Economics Ministry.
The minister hopes that the current government will be able to finalize the decision about liberalizing the gas market, which is slated to be opened on April 3, 2017.
She is confident that her party - the Greens and Farmers Union - will vote for opening the market, and stressed that for the matter to move smoothly through it's important that the current coalition of Unity, National Alliance, and Greens leads the new government.
In the interview Reizniece-Ozola also panned out her plans as future Finance Minister. Under her the ministry would audit the tax system by the end of the year, enlisting the help of World Bank experts. She plans on making the taxes constant for at least a few years and not allow "last night solutions" to be made to the budget.
