ELECTIONS IN LATVIA 4/10/2014

Why I will vote this time? Because regardless the fact that for years now I have the feeling of disappointment and not belonging to my country. I still say “my country”. That means that I care. That I would like to see Latvia – independent, democratic, prosperous, a country that cares for its people and where there is a true rule of law and justice.

No, I have no hopes that this parliament (Saeima) and the new government will succeed or will be better than previous 11 ones since our independence in 1991, but I feel that this time more than before my vote will count because of geopolitical situation and possible threats to our independence. I still hope that my vote will provide opportunity for someone to decide, to take responsibility, to adopt policies that will change what is wrong and put in place laws that protect people. [Or not.]

But not going is not an option this time.

  1. That I would like to see Latvia – independent, democratic, prosperous, a country that cares for its people and where there is a true rule of law and justice. – That’s the dream. God knows how many more years it will take though.

    1. Thanks for your comment – you’re right. I have noticed this after publishing, but never had time to get back to my “dormant” blog and correct it 🙂 And this makes me think about elections again – we did vote, but once again – did we elect the right people to make decisions for us…
