Prime minister candidate Aldis Gobzems from KPV LV has invited New Conservative Party to stay in his government.


«NCP is offered to implement the promises made in their programme, especially in regards to reforms in education, healthcare and justice. You have the decisive votes. Timely approval of the state budget and payment of promised wages to people depends on NCP,» said Gobzems in his post on Facebook.


«Jānis Bordāns, we will not have any other opportunities to implement the most of our programmes. […] I don’t believe NCP will consider it a brave, honest and clever step the decision to enter in an ideological opposition and allow Attīstībai/Par! form a minority government with less freedom to implement their programme, leaving KPV LV in the opposition. I don’t believe NCP would consider the unwillingness to implement promises detailed in the programme by hiding behind red lines and fooling voters as a brave, fair and clever decision,» Gobzems continued in his post.


The prime minister candidate also stresses that there is not much time left – 10 December is the deadline. He invites NCP to make its decision before 20:00 of Saturday, 8 December.


Currently Gobzems’ chances of forming a new government hinge on the possibility of NCP and Union of Greens and Farmers reaching an agreement on cooperation.
 

As it is known, Gobzems has offered giving the largest number of seats in the government to NCP on the condition the party puts away its red lines and agree on cooperating with UGF in the new government.


KPV LV wants three seats in the government – prime minister’s post for Gobzems, finance minister’s post for Roberts Spručs and interior affairs minister’s post for Ralfs Nemiro.
 

NCP is offered four seats: transport minister’s post for Tālis Linkaits, healthcare minister’s post for Juris Jurašs, education minister’s post for Dagmāra Beitnere-Le Galla and justice minister’s post for Jānis Bordāns or Juta Strīķe.


The National Alliance ‘All for Latvia’ – ‘For Fatherland and Freedom/LNNK’ is offered three posts: environment protection minister’s post for Raivis Dzintars or Rihards Kols, welfare minister’s post for Imants Parādnieks and culture minister’s post for Dace Melbārde.


UGF and New Unity are offered two seats each in the government: agriculture minister’s seat may go to Edgars Tavars or Armands Krauze and defence minister’s post may go to Raimonds Bergmanis. Economy minister and foreign affairs minister post may got to New Unity representatives Jānis Reirs and Edgars Rinkēvičs.


KPV LV also wants to replace the heads of Saeima’s Budget and Finance Committee, appointing KPV LV member Atis Zakatistovs as its head instead of Attīstībai/Par! member Mārtiņš Bondars.


KPV LV also wants to exclude AP’s representative Marija Golubeva from Saeima Praesidium and replacing her with Artuss Kaimiņš. Inese Lībiņa-Egnere from New Unity is proposed to be given the seat of Saeima deputy secretary.


AP, on the other hand, criticizes Gobzems for his ties with ex-politician Ainārs Šlesers and plans to allow Harmony to the Saeima through the back door. As LETA was told by the party’s representative Laila Spaliņa, prime minister candidate Gobzems fears AP will run his plans to allow Harmony to join the government. She also added that her party categorically opposes his plans to limit media freedom and increase secrecy in government meetings.
