Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 180
Latvia’s Saeima yesterday elected Alfreds Cepanis of the Owners’ Democratic party (Saimnieks) as the new parliamentary chairman. Cepanis, whose left-of-center party is the single largest in parliament, was unopposed. He replaces Ilga Kreituse, whom Saimnieks recently forced to resign from the party along with her husband, Aivars Kreituse, the finance minister, on charges of misappropriation of public funds.
