TIRANA, Albania (AP) — Albania’s prime minister has announced his new cabinet in which women form the majority, keeping most of his previous government’s officials but naming new finance and justice ministers. The new government has to be formally confirmed by parliament, which convenes Sept. 10, and until then members of Prime Minister Edi Rama’s previous cabinet will keep their posts. But his Socialist Party holds a strong enough majority in parliament to ensure the new cabinet’s approval. Rama secured his third consecutive mandate in an April 25 parliamentary election, winning 74 of parliament’s 140 seats. The main opposition center-right Democratic Party got 59 seats.
