According to the opinion polls, neither the Union of Greens and Farmers nor the Latvian Association of Regions would not meet the five percent threshold of being voted into the Riga City Council, as both parties enjoy just around 2 percent support at the moment.
As reported, the Environment Protection and Regional Development Ministry has decided to initiate dissolution of the Riga City Council because the local authority has repeatedly failed to fulfill one of its functions – to ensure waste management services.
