The party of the mayor of Riga has won elections, but will remain in opposition?


Why most of citizens of Latvia has voted for Neil Ushakov's "Consent" and what can prevent party to create the government? Neil Ushakov. Photo: Artem Geodakyan / TASS of Party of Neil Ushakov was succeeded to go to diet from 20% of voices. Even the information campaign against this political force which opponents call to friendly Moscow hasn't prevented. When results of elections were already clear, the next portion of criticism was given by the head of the European Council Donald Tusk. Speaking about vote in Latvia, he has said that "Russia is ready for everything to break unity of the EU". However, experts consider such thesis overdue. In due time "Consent" really cooperated with United Russia, but the contract has been dissolved at the initiative of the Latvian side. The party wins in many respects thanks to the political capital which Ushakov has today. His course on the solution of social problems together with work of PR managers his parties have brought success as among Russians, and Latvians, the political analyst of radio Baltkom Vadim Rodionov says: "Neil Ushakov really one of the most popular politicians in the country and one of the most popular mayors of Riga for all history.

Earlier he has said that for him it will become a difficult task as the country needs the prime minister who could unite all political parties, and the government would continue to hold an Euro-Atlantic course. Ushakov is convinced that the president has to give such opportunity to the candidate of "Consent" Vyacheslav Dombrovsky. Without this party the efficient coalition in diet won't manage to be created, the leader of "Consent" claims. However, most likely, she nevertheless will be created from representatives of right-wing parties — as well as earlier, the associate professor of integration processes of MGIMO Alexander Tevdoy-Burmuli:aleksandr Tevdoy-Burmuli the associate professor of the European integration of MGIMO "Believes I think that it is very improbable because Ushakov's party has gained practically the same number of votes, чт
