Macedonia's parliament has approved the cabinet reshuffle submitted by Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, news reports from Skopje said Saturday.

The 120-seat parliament voted in four new cabinet ministers late Friday after five hours of debate, Macedonia's official news agency MIA said.

Zoran Stavrevski, who will remain as the country's deputy prime minister without portfolio, is the new finance minister succeeding Trajko Slaveski, who had been dismissed.

Nikola Todorov, former director of Skopje land registry office, will lead the country's education ministry; while Ljupco Dimovski, former vice transport minister, will be the new agriculture minister. They will respectively succeed Pero Stojanovski and Aco Spasenoski, who resigned earlier this week.

The parliament also approved the nomination of Vlado Pesevski, former director of the country's small enterprise office, as the new deputy prime minister in charge of economy.

Vasko Naumovski, associate professor of international law at Skopje New York University, was approved as the new deputy prime minister in charge of European integration to succeed Ivica Bocevski, who resigned last week.

Analysts said the cabinet reshuffle shows that Gruevski's government would be bent on tackling the global financial crisis and putting the country's EU accession efforts onto a fast track.
