Saeima deputy quits party but not parliament

Saeima deputy Romāns Naudiņš has announced he has decided to leave the ranks of the right-of-center National Alliance (NA) Saeima faction but will not be laying aside his mandate.

In his application to the Presidium of the Saeima and Raivis Dzintars, the head of the NA Saeima faction, Naudiņš indicated that he had decided to leave the faction from Monday, January 24 but will continue as an independent member until the next Saeima elections on October 1.

He complained that he didn't like the coalition government's Covid-19 policy. The National Alliance is part of the coalition.

Recently, Naudiņš came to the fore due to the fact that he was one of several deputies who had not submitted a Covid-19 certificate to the Saeima Mandate, Ethics and Submission Committee. The deputy presented it only in the middle of January this year.

Back in 2014 he made headlines as a minister when he was denied security clearance. He is also known for his support for Azerbaijan.
