    Gobzems excludes For Development/For from government formation talks

    RIGA, Dec 4 (LETA) – Aldis Gobzems (KPV LV), the prime minister nominated by the president, has decided to exclude For Development/For from the government formation talks, Gobzems told LETA.

    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 proposals and follow Jaunups’ orders.

    Gobzems 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.

    "It is obvious that For Development/For is not interested in reducing medicine prices, liquidating the mandatory purchase component, restricting gambling. It is obvious that the party is doing everything possible not to come to any decisions. At the same time, I thank other parties for the constructive ability to cope with these destructive actions and be able to discuss the problem issues," said Gobzems.

    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.
