1st Green PM

20 Feb

Latvia's president has named a Green party lawmaker as the country's next prime minister – two weeks after his predecessor resigned.

Indulis Emsis, 52, will be Europe's first Green prime minister.

Link.

Interesting. Why are Greens in Eastern Europe centre-right parties? I'm a political scientist with extensive knowledge of Western Green and it never makes any sense to me.
