    JKP might propose to exclude also Greens/Farmers from government formation talks

    RIGA, Dec 4 (LETA) – The New Conservative Party (JKP) is considering a possibility to propose to exclude also the Union of Greens and Farmers from the government formation talks, said JKP chairman Janis Bordans.

    He said that the remaining four parties could ensure the majority with 53 votes at the parliament. JKP already earlier had said that the government should be formed without Greens/Farmers.

    Commenting on the decision of prime minister nominee Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV) to exclude For Development/For from the government formation talks, Bordans said that he can understand this decision, but he cannot comment further on it.

    As reported. Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV), the prime minister nominated by the president, has decided to exclude For Development/For from the government formation talks.

    Gobzems criticized For Development/For for wishing to "play the game that is understandable only for Edgars Jaunups and his sponsors". "There have been no constructive proposals, there have been lies in front of TV cameras, cowardly smiles, behind-the-curtains proposals and attempts yesterday to negotiate a government led by Krisjanis Karins (New Unity) and buy votes from other parties," Gobzems said, adding that he hopes other parties would not agree to such dirty proposals and would not follow Jaunups’ orders.

    Gobzems claims that Jaunups is attempting to form a coalition with For Development/For, the New Conservative Party (JKP), New Unity and the National Alliance.

    The politician said that in the present parliament he does not see it possible to cooperate with For Development/For as long as they are just puppets in the hands of Jaunups.

    So far six parties were involved in the talks on a Gobzems-led government: KPV LV, For Development/For, the New Conservative Party, the National Alliance, the Union of Greens and Farmers in New Unity. All these parties have said a coalition with Harmony, the seventh party represented in the 13th Saeima, would not be possible.
