Zinaida Greceanii was named Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova on Wednesday. Incumbent Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin announced that by June 10, when the Parliament will be reunited again, the government will designate its ministers.

Up to yesterday, ex-Parliament's Speaker Marian Lupu was favored for the Prime Minister position. He lost his party's support after in an interview for Radio Free Europe he implied that he might leave the Communist Party.
