    National Alliance still would like to discuss position of demographic affairs minister with partners

    RIGA, Jan 7 (LETA) – The National Alliance still would like to discuss the position of a demographic affairs minister or other solutions to demography problems with the potential coalition partners.

    National Alliance’s chairman Raivis Dzintars said after the meeting with the New Unity representatives that today’s talks were more about the process how the government declaration is being organized and problem issues solved.

    The National Alliance is ready to work to agree on the declaration in two weeks.

    Speaking about the overall situation, Dzintars said that what is happening right now is a result of serious compromises and the party still is dissatisfied with a number of issues.

    He reminded that the New Unity proposed to establish a minister’s post for the demographic issues, but KPV LV is against it. “We do not think that the form is the most important issue. If the goal can be achieved in a different way, we are ready to discuss it,” he said.

    As reported, President Vejonis on Monday nominated European Parliament member Krisjanis Karins (New Unity) as Latvia’s next prime minister.

    Karins has proposed forming a coalition government that would include New Unity, the New Conservative Party (JKP), For Development/For, KPV LV and the National Alliance. The Union of Greens and Farmers and Harmony would be left in opposition.
