RIGA - It is normal for coalition parties to fight for their interests, but it is important for these efforts not to become destructive, the deputy head of the National Alliance's group at Saeima Janis Dombrava told LETA, commenting the recent disagreements within the coalition.
The politician said that political organizations usually try to draw attention to themselves, but that he hopes that the productive work of the coalition will continue. He reminded how difficult it was to form the current government after the 13th Saeima elections. ''If after six months of work problems begin to re-appear on whether or not the government is an able one, this would not be a good signal,'' the politician explained.
He said that some parties might have become motivated in expressing their positions more actively due to lower ratings, while others ''want to stand out by looking younger than the rest''. Dombrava added that when a coalition is made up of five political parties none of them want to ''disappear in the shadows''. Dombrava said that it would be quite difficult to form a new government in such a fragmented parliament.
