Rihards Eigims was elected the new chairman of Daugavpils City Council today.

Eigims was one of those who proposed dismissing the previous Daugavpils mayor, Andrejs Elksnins (Harmony). Eigims also was the mayor of Daugavpils, the second largest city in Latvia, several years ago.

Although Eigims earlier said he was planning to create as broad a coalition as possible, which could also be joined by Harmony members, ten Daugavpils City Council members voted for Eigims today, while all five Harmony members voted against him.

Eigims' new coalition is made up of six Latgale Party members and four councilmen who were elected to Daugavpils City Council from Our Party's ticket. However, none of these four is a member of the party and, for instance, Eigims is a member of Latvian Farmers' Union.

As reported, earlier today Elksnins was dismissed as the mayor of Daugavpils.
