Party to try reinstating toppled Jūrmala mayor

The Union of Greens and Farmers is likely to nominate Gatis Truksnis for Jurmala mayor, even though the city council removed him from the mayor position last month, reported LETA Thursday.

Janis Ledins (Greens/Farmers), a member of the Jurmala City Council, told LETA that the Union of Greens and Farmers would not vote for Iveta Blaua, who has been nominated for the mayoral office by Unity, and will propose their own candidate.

Asked who will be their candidate, Ledins said that the name would be announced later. Ledins, however, gave an affirmative answer when asked if Truksnis will be that candidate. He also added that the party has no other candidates, at least for now.

Unofficial information obtained by LETA also suggests that Truksnis might be the Union of Greens and Farmers' candidate for the vacant post of Jurmala mayor.

Unity has named councilor Iveta Blaua as its candidate.

As reported, Gatis Truksnis (Greens/Farmers), who is being probed for involvement in illegal party financing, was dismissed as Jurmala mayor on October 13.
