By bne IntelliNews August 5, 2011
Romanias health minister Cseke Attila resigned in disagreement with the insufficient financing of the countrys public healthcare system, interfering with the massive reforms calendar, state agency Agerpres announced. The government endorsed the first budget revision for the year this week, explained Attila. The minority ruling party, ethnic Hungarians UDMR, announced that the health ministers resignation would not threaten the functioning of the countrys ruling coalition. Cseke Attila will act as interim minister for 15 days during which UDMR will nominate another minister. The nomination does not have to be sanctioned by the parliament, where the ruling coalition holds a fragile majority.
