    Government is prepared to make unpopular decisions and we may see some this year - Latvian president

    RIGA, Jan 11 (LETA) - The Latvian government is prepared to make unpopular decisions and we may see some such decisions this year, Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis said on the morning news program of the public Latvian Television on Wednesday.

    The most serious decisions, including in respect of tax policy, health care and education, will have to be made this year, he said. "Some may like those decisions while others may disapprove of them. I think the most important thing is that the government takes those decisions," Vejonis said.

    Answering a question about whether the coming local elections might interfere with the decision-making, the Latvian president said: "The elections will be a complication but it is my impression from the meetings with the prime minister that he wants the government to make those decisions. I am sure that the individual ministers will also be ready to take those decisions."

    Speaking about other things, Vejonis admitted that the re-remigration plan had not been very successful. In general, Latvia has produced too many different plans where it should have simply focused on getting some real things done, he said.
