Members of Latvia’s National Security Council have decided to propose the current head of the Constitution Protection Bureau Jānis Maizītis for another term at the helm of this institution, as BNN was informed by the State President’s Chancellery.

«Maizītis has proven his professionalism, independence and strength of character in efforts to defend public interests associated with safety of the Latvian state. This is why I invite Saeima members to discuss the matter regarding the new chief of Constitution Protection Bureau responsibly and without hesitation,» says President of Latvia Raimonds Vējonis.

The parliament will decide on Maizītis’ approval.

His current term ends in May. Maizītis was approved in his post as chief of Constitution Protection Bureau on 14 March 2013. The chief of this institution is elected for a term of five years.

If Maizītis is not approved in his post for a second term, Saeima member Gunārs Kūtris would be ready to take his place, which he has confirmed in an interview to 900 seconds programme of LNT.
