Coalition with Harmony not realistic now – Gobzems

KPV LV voters do not have objections to taking Harmony party in the coalition, but such a scenario is not realistic right now, said KPV LV candidate for the prime minister, Aldis Gobzems, in an interview with the Latvian public television today.

Asked whether the New Conservative Party should drop its "red lines" against the Union of Greens and Farmers, Gobzems said that the society in general should drop the drawn lines that are splitting up the society.

Gobzems also said that quite many voters do not object to taking Harmony party in the coalition, but in reality such a combination is impossible at present.

Gobzems said that there are behind-the-curtains talks on the new coalition, but no official meetings of parties are planned in the nearest days. He believes that there will be no significant progress in the government formation talks before the new prime minister is nominated.

As reported, after another round of consultations with the political parties represented in the 13th Saeima, President Raimonds Vejonis did not name a new candidate for prime minister on Tuesday and gave the parties until November 26 to agree on Latvia's next coalition.

The president indicated that for the time being none of the two candidates for prime minister proposed by the political parties has a clear support of parliamentary majority.
