Latvian analysts believe that political crisis in Latvia gives the Consent Center a chance to get the majority of Seim seats and enter the ruling coalition. Such outcome of elections might have led to the solution of a painful issue of political rights of “non-citizens”.
“Things that happen in Latvia after the dismissal of Seim may be compared to an effect of a brick, thrown into the anthill. Complete mess, no one understands what to do”. These are the words of a political engineer Erik Stendzenieks describe the situation in this Baltic State quite accurately. Let me remind you that in the beginning of June Latvian Seim elected Andris Bērziņš as the new President — he’s a businessman that has almost no political experience but features the support of local business elites.
