Latvian prime minister announces resignation – DW – 08/14/2023


Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins on Monday said he would resign later in the week, along with the rest of his government.

Karins is reportedly hoping an election will help him reconfigure the government after current coalition partners rejected his proposed cabinet reshuffle.

“This Thursday I will submit the resignation of myself and this cabinet to the president,” Karins told a press conference.

Karins is at the helm of a three-way alliance of his liberal-conservative New Unity party, the conservative National Alliance and the center-right electoral alliance United List.

For some time, the 58-year-old has been pushing to widen the coalition to include the Alliance of Farmers and Greens and the
left-leaning Progressives. However, his two coalition partners have repeatedly expressed reservations about the move.
