RIGA (Reuters) – Latvia’s president nominated Janis Bordans of the New Conservative Party as Prime Minister on Wednesday and gave him until November 21 to try to form a government following October elections that yielded a fragmented parliament.

“I invite Janis Bordans to form a new government”, President Raimonds Vejonis from the Latvian Green Party told reporters.
