    115 polling stations to be created abroad for Latvian general elections

    RIGA, May 14 (LETA) - Based on the proposals by the Latvian Foreign Ministry, the Central Election Commission today decided that 115 polling stations will be opened in 44 foreign countries for the Latvian general elections this fall.

    The Central Election Commission said that one more polling station might be added to the list later, once an agreement is reached about the venue in Orebro, Sweden.

    The polling stations will be opened in the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Greece, Georgia, Estonia, India, Iceland, Italy, Israel, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Russia, hina, the United Kingdom, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Moldova, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Finland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Germany and Sweden.

    Compared to the previous Latvian general elections four years ago, the number of polling stations abroad will increase by 18. The largest number of polling stations will be opened in the U.S. (21), the United Kingdom (15) and Germany (9). For the first time, Latvia will have polling stations in South Korea and Moldova.

    The polling stations abroad can be used not only by the Latvian citizens living in the given country but also by the Latvian citizens, who have went abroad temporarily for business or leisure.
