    KPV LV would under no circumstances work in government led by Pabriks - Gobzems

    RIGA, Nov 7 (LETA) - Artis Pabriks, who was nominated for prime minister by the For Development/For alliance, represents "the same old politics", and KPV LV would under no circumstances work in a government led by Pabriks, KPV LV leader Aldis Gobzems told reporters today.

    Following Raimonds Vejonis' decision to nominate Janis Bordans (New Conservative Party) for prime minister, Gobzems expressed support for Bordans and the government he would form.

    He said he was confident that KPV LV would support Bordans' government and Juta Strike (New Conservative Party) as the next interior minister, and wished Bordans endurance and every success.

    At the same time, Gobzems strongly criticized Pabriks for being an "old-ways politician", unlike KPV LV which is resolved to achieve change.

    Pabriks went into politics together with Andris Skele, therefore he is a relic of that time and epitomizes all that KPV LV wants to do away with: the mandatory procurement component in electricity bills, gaming venues, and payday loans. Had Vejonis nominated Pabriks for prime minister, KPV LV would in no circumstances work in his government, said Gobzems.

    As for inviting For Development/For to join the new coalition, Gobzems was not so judgmental, saying that it would be Bordans' job to set up a new coalition and decide which parties it would be comprised of.

    Pabriks said in turn that he would not comment every single unfounded allegation about him or For Development/For, but he hoped that such allegations would not go unnoticed by Bordans. It is hard "to talk about ideal harmony during the talks when the potential coalition partners start to sling mud at you during the very first minutes," said Pabriks.
