Romania’s Boc Names Ex-President Adviser to Head Labor Ministry

Romanian Prime Minister Emil Boc nominated a former presidential adviser to head the country’s Labor Ministry, almost two months after a possible conflict of interest forced the previous minister to resign.

Boc named Sebastian Lazaroiu, 41, to fill the vacant position and sent his nomination to the president for approval, the government said in a text message today.

Lazaroiu will replace Ioan Botis, who resigned in April because of a possible conflict of interest over his wife’s work at a non-profit organization that received European Union funds through the ministry.
