Thus, today the governing coalitionnegotiated, and at 20.00CET+1 LETA news agency announced that the nominee of the Latvian governing coalition for the post of the Latvian president is Mr. Valdis Zatlers!
What a rollercoaster in Latvian politics! Just minutes ago Mr. Zatlers gave an interview to the LatvianTV station and answered that he was given 24 hours for agreeing on the offer. Mr Zatlers is a doctor and for the last 15 years he was a director of the Latvian Orthopedic Centre. Now the journalists will have to find who is Mr Zatlers. Right now agreement about Mr Zatlers as the presidential candidate have openly announced Minister of Interior, Mr Ivars Godmanis (LC) and Prime Minster, Mr Aigars Kalvītis (TP).
Lets wait until tomorrow, when there would be more information, because until May 31 there is still some time left.
