Take note – story published 6 years and 1 month ago

The Environment Ministry, also tasked with supervising local councils, has threatened to sack the Ķekava municipal council due to violations, the ministry told the press April 11. 

The ministry wants the Ķekava municipal council to immediately cancel a decision over changing the makeup of the committees in the council that it had taken without the councilors' consent and without informing them.

Under the current rules a committee member can only be replaced on the grounds of a formal request about leaving the committee.

"If the Ķekava municipal councilors are unable to abide to rules and regulations, the council may be sacked, without a shadow of a doubt, for gross violations of democratic principles," the ministry's Parliamentary Secretary Jānis Eglītis said.
