Three ministers quit in coalition split in Albania
Tirana (Albania): Three Cabinet ministers have resigned in Albania as a junior partner formally pulled out of the conservative-led coalition government ahead of June General Elections.
The ministers of economy, health and foreign affairs resigned on Wednesday after the Socialist Movement for Integration Party, or LSI, withdrew from Prime Minister Sali Berisha`s government.
The move had been widely expected after LSI`s leadership announced plans to form an alliance with the opposition Socialists for the June 23 election.
Berisha later named the replacements: Aldo Bumci, the current tourism minister, to head foreign affairs; Florjon Mima for economy minister; and Halim Kosova for minister of health.
Parliament must approve the Cabinet nominations before they take effect.
Earlier this week, Berisha promised that his government would function normally until the June polls, despite the coalition split.
