Mauritanian prime minister-designate Moulaye Ould Mohamed Laghdaf on Wednesday announced the lineup of his new 26-minister government, according to an Anadolu Agency correspondent.
Almost half of the outgoing government ministers retained their posts in the new government, which was drawn up following days of consultations between Laghdaf and Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel-Aziz.
A new Ministry for Mauritanian Expatriates was also introduced, while some junior Mauritanian politicians were given ministerial posts in the new cabinet.
After submitting his government's resignation last week, Laghdaf was tasked with drawing up a new government.
Mauritanian governments usually submit their collective resignations following legislative and municipal polls, both ofwhich were held last December.Last Mod: 13 Şubat 2014, 11:32
