President sacks Energy and Industry Minister
President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has dismissed Energy and industry Minister Yarmukhammet Orazgulyev.
Apparently the minister’s son was involved in a road traffic accident which led the president to comment that ministers must be better parents.
In the same general meeting of ministers the head of the Turkmen Politechnical Institute, Khydyr Saparlyev was also dismissed. Two education ministers were severely reprimanded.
