Priština: Three ministers replaced

PRIŠTINA -- The Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) dismissed three ministers from the government on Wednesday, as part of a cabinet reconfiguration.

DPA reports that the ministers of health, justice and culture were fired and new ministers appointed, said the party, led by Kosovo Albanian President Fatmir Sejdiu.

Beyond the reconfiguration of the cabinet, reasons for the replacements remained unclear.

The restructuring of the government was announced in October, when LDK's coalition partner, Prime Minister Hashim Thaci's Democratic Party of Kosovo, wanted to break off the coalition over problems at the local level.
