Socialist, 30, Is Asked to Form Government

From Times Wire Reports

Albanian President Rexhep Mejdani asked the Socialist Party’s secretary-general, Pandeli Majko, to form a government, setting the stage for the 30-year-old to become Europe’s youngest head of government. Outgoing Socialist Party Prime Minister Fatos Nano resigned Monday after failing to get the backing of his coalition for a Cabinet reshuffle in the wake of an outbreak of political violence two weeks ago.
