RIGA - The Harmony's group at the Riga City Council has shrunk after the snap elections, but it will continue to be active and aggressive, said one of the party's leaders and long-term Riga mayor Nils Usakovs in a conversation with LETA.

Usakovs said that the party and Riga councilors are going through a test. 'We have shrunk. We will see how we are able to show our ability in the present situation," said the politician, claiming that such situations are actually healthy for any political party. "We have a good team, and this is a test for the members and the party whether we will be able to defend Harmony's values," said Usakovs.

Usakovs said that the party will continue to be active and even aggressive.

The next test for the party will be local elections in regions. Usakovs said that the party should draw conclusions from the Riga City Council elections and strengthen its positions.

According to the preliminary election results, seven political parties have won representation on the Riga City Council. AP/P will receive 18 mandates, Harmony 12, New Unity ten, the National Alliance and the Latvian Association of Regions seven, Honor to Serve Riga (GKR) five, and LKS and JKP will each get four mandates.
