Latvia ex-PM may succeed Van Rompuy as president of European Council
is a Latvian politician who served as Prime Minister of Latvia from 2009 until 2014,
when he resigned. He served as Minister of Finance
from 2002 to 2004 and was a Member of the
European Parliament for the New Era Party.
Former Latvian prime minister Valdis Dombrovskis
is emerging as a major contender to succeed
Herman Van Rompuy
as president of the European Council but member states are still deadlocked over the nomination.
The lack of consensus means the name of Taoiseach Enda Kenny remains under quiet discussion in diplomatic circles, although close associates insist he
has no interest in the job.
The nominee’s task is to chair summits whenever the leaders of the 28 member states gather and seek agreement among leaders in advance of such
meetings. The mandate is for 2½ years.
New Era Party sounds like new world order stuff.
I wonder if Luxenburg/Brussils are still calling the behind the scean strings?
Latvia, officially the Republic of Latvia,
is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe,
one of the three Baltic states.
