Saeima advances law saying Latvia doesn't need LNG terminal

On October 19, the Latvian Saeima supported the draft law stipulating the Law on Skulte LNG terminal construction has lost its validity, LSM reports. 

85 parliamentarians voted for the abolition of the law, none voted against it, one abstained. 

The abolition of the law on the construction of a LNG terminal is justified with the claim that it is not in the interests of national security and that friendly neighboring countries have developed this infrastructure.

The deadline previously set is also impossible to achieve, says the annotation.

The abolition of the law does not prevent developers to build a terminal in the free market.

For the law to lose its validity, the Saeima must view the draft law in two more readings.
