Harmony and Honor to Serve Riga ahead in Riga election polls

An SKDS opinion poll carried out in February says that the Harmony and Honor to Serve Riga's joint ticket for the upcoming municipal election would receive 43.3% of votes in Riga, well ahead of the competition, reported LTV on March 21.

The National Alliance would receive 7.8% of votes. A further 6.1% would cast their vote for the Regional Alliance and For Latvia's Development join ticket . 5.4% would vote for Unity and a further 5% would vote for the Greens and Farmers Union.

The KPV LV party would receive 3.9%, the New Conservative Party 1.5% and the Latvian Union of Russians 0.5% of the votes.

16% don't know who they'd vote for and a further 8.6% said they won't vote.

In the 2013 municipal elections Harmony and Honor to Serve Riga received 58% of the vote.

The poll was carried out prior to the New Conservative Party's announcement that Juta Strike, the well-known anti-graft official, would be running from their ticket.

Arnis Kaktiņš, the head of the SKDS pollster, said that while Strike's appearance might not be enough to shake up the ruling coalition, it might prove to be a headache for Unity and Regional Alliance.
