    JKP offers coalition model made up of KPV LV, For Development/For, National Alliance and New Unity

    RIGA, Oct 12 (LETA) - The New Conservative Party (JKP), which is conducting the second round of government formation talks, has offered to set-up a coalition made up of JKP, KPV LV, For Development/For, the National Alliance and New Unity.

    After a meeting with JKP today, New Unity's prime minister candidate Krisjanis Karins said that JKP's offered coalition model is made up of five parties. He said that JKP has also expressed how it sees the next government and the division of ministerial responsibilities.

    New Unity has been offered to head the Justice Ministry and the Defense Ministry.

    Karins said that JKP has made its specific offer and the division of responsibilities, and that New Unity will discuss this on October 15 during a party meeting.

    Earlier today, JKP also met with the National Alliance and offered them to join this potential government.

    As LETA was told by National Alliance leader Raivis Dzintars, his party was made an offer to join this potential coalition by JKP, but he did not specify the division of ministerial responsibilities offered to the party.

    The politician said that talks are moving forward and there is still unknown. He added that the party will assess 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.

    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.
