 RIGA, Dec 10 - Even though the Reform Party's board and council have decided against running together with Unity in the Riga City Council elections, the party's leader Valdis Zatlers does not exclude such a possibility.
"The political situation changes frequently, even very frequently. I would be cautious before we make our final decision and commence our campaign," Zatlers admits in an interview with the newspaper "Diena". He is convinced that much will depend on the Reform Party in the Riga City Council elections. The fate of Riga will depend on the party's performance in the upcoming municipal elections, emphasizes the politician.
According to Zatlers, the public is awaiting the Reform Party's dramatic entrance - the party's mayoral candidate. Therefore the Reform Party, aware of its responsibility, will stick to carefully analyzing the situation, says Zatlers and adds - "the greater the actor, the longer the pause and the greater the success."
As reported, three parties have already announced their candidates for the Riga City Council elections. Harmony Center has nominated Nils Usakovs for another term in office, Unity - Sarmite Elerte, and All For Latvia-For Fatherland And Freedom/LNNK - Baiba Broka.
The 2013 municipal elections will be held on June 1.
