ENT/"For the development of Latvia" received in the Metropolitan Council nine seats, the NCP — also nine, VL-TB/LNNK — six, "Unity" is four.
The representatives of the four elected to the city Council "Latvian" parties have already agreed to work together in opposition. The leader of the list of ENT/"For the development of Latvia" Martins Bondars and the leader of the list of the national Association Baiba Brock confirmed to LETA that such an agreement was reached Thursday at a meeting of representatives of these parties, the New conservative party (NCP) and the "Unity".
"Separately on fractions we will not achieve anything, and all together will be quite strong and constructive opposition," said Brock, adding that during the meeting the parties exchanged views on how to work together.
Brock has not confirmed unofficial information that the candidate in mayors from these parties may be the bonders, and a candidate for Vice-mayor — founder of NKP Janis Bordans. These and other questions will be considered.
