RIGA (Reuters) - Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma said on Monday that she was resigning her post.

Straujuma made the announcement after meeting with the country's President Raimonds Vejonis. She gave no more details.

Straujuma's hawkish, center ruling coalition won a 2014 general election after taking a hard line over the actions of Russia, its neighbors and former ruler, in Ukraine.
