PM Zaev, AA leader Sela fail to agree on health minister post

PM Zaev, AA leader Sela fail to agree on health minister post

Skopje, 21 December 2017 (MIA) - The Alliance of Albanians wishes for its candidate to be appointed as a new health minister, party leader Zijadin Sela told reporters Thursday after a meeting with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.

The post has been vacant for two months as Arben Taravari from the Alliance of Albanians, who served as Health Minister, was meanwhile elected for Gostival Mayor at the recent local elections.

'We have had a meeting with the PM and we hold to our position to not accept posts created overnight that undermine the Alliance of Albanians... The government's composition was agreed when it was constituted,' Sela said.

While in office Taravari was rather successful in managing the health care sector, Sela said. He failed to say whether his party would remain the government's coalition  partner.

The party, he added, will keep participating in and supporting the reform process.

'We were playing the main role in ousting the regime, and remain focused on dealing with the rest of the regime's proponents, who are now part of this government, as they should be brought to justice,' Sela said. lk/16:51
