Dombrovskis vies for European person of the year award

Dec 11, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Three candidates have been nominated for the title of the European Person of the Year award, reports LETA. 

European Union Court of Justice Judge Egils Levits, European Parliament Member Inese Vaidere  and outgoing Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis received the largest number of residents' votes.

This year's "European Person of the Year" will be announced during a ceremony at the Bank of Latvia on Dec. 17.

Levits has been praised for his efforts in drafting the bill on the Constitution's preamble and promoting patriotic and European thinking.

Vaidere has been recognized for her active work in the European Parliament, popularizing Latvia and not shying away from politically-uncomfortable topics.

Dombrovskis has gained voters' respect as a politician in whom Latvians can take pride at the national and European levels. Residents point out that the prime minister has a strong sense of responsibility and high morals.
