    JKP has offered National Alliance to join potential coalition - Dzintars

    RIGA, Oct 12 (LETA) - Raivis Dzintars, the leader of the National Alliance, told LETA today that during a second round of government formation talks the New Conservative Party (JKP) offered the National Alliance to join a potential coalition.

    These two parties met again today, during which JKP offer a potential government model with the division of responsibilities between parties. However, Dzintars refrained from giving out specifics.

    The politician said that talks are moving forward, but there is still much unknown. He also said that the National Alliance will evaluate JKP's offer.

    As reported, according to the preliminary election results, Harmony party has won 23 seats in the 13th Saeima, KPV LV and the New Conservative Party (JKP) will have sixteen MPs each, For Development/For and National Alliance - thirteen MPs each, Greens/Farmers - eleven, and New Unity - eight MPs.

    Both KPV LV and JKP have concluded the first round of government formation talks this week, with the second round of talks to be held next week.

    All six of the so-called Latvian parties have previously stated that they do not plan on joining a government with Harmony in it.

    Meanwhile, JKP went further earlier this week, drawing another red-line by stating that it also will not work together with the Union of Greens and Farmers in the next government.
