Photo: Ints Kalnins/Reuters At parliamentary elections in Latvia the victory was won by Soglasiye party headed by the mayor of Riga Neil Ushakov. The party traditionally expresses the interests of the Russian-speaking population of Latvia and is still in the lead on elections to diet almost from 20% of votes. Commenting on results of elections, Neil Ushakov has told, that to the president of Latvia now to the candidate of the party leading on elections it is necessary to give to create the new cabinet. "The president of Latvia can't but give an opportunity to Vyacheslav Dombrovsky to create the new cabinet" — Ushakov in Facebook has said, having noted that the efficient ruling coalition without Soglasiye is impossible. Elections to diet of Latvia have taken place on October 6. 16 political parties fought for 100 places in legislature. Despite an unconditional victory, Soglasiye will remain in opposition, the editor-in-chief of the Latvian newspaper "Vesti Segodnya" Andrey Shvedov is sure: "Ethnic vote is characteristic of Latvia the last quarter of the century after the collapse of the USSR: each Russian votes for so-called Russian parties, Latvians — for so-called Latvian parties.
