Venko Filipce – new health minister

Neurosurgeon Venko Filipce, health care adviser at the Prime Minister’s Cabinet, is going to be the new health minister, government sources told MIA.

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.

The government is expected to submit the nomination for new health minister to the Parliament, along with its proposals for minister without portfolio and deputy minister of education and science.
