RIGA – Krisjanis Karins’ (New Unity) government will be approved by the Saeima, but it will not have a serious majority and it will not be stable, said KPV LV politician Aldis Gobzems in an interview with Neatkariga daily today.

"It is clear that this government will not work until the next parliament elections. One of the reasons for instability is ideological arguments in the core of the government that consists of far liberal and far conservative forces. Second – the government will be headed by the smallest faction," he said.

Aldis Gobzems repeatedly said that he will not support Karins’ government and, in his opinion, there are other lawmakers in KPV LV faction with the same stance. He added also that much will depend on the government declaration.

He said that he is satisfied with the present situation at the parliament where votes are made without the ruling coalition. "At present, before the new government is approved, votes at the parliament are held in line with everyone’s conscience. Often lawmakers of the same factions vote differently. We are seeing the real democracy and victory of the best ideas instead of supporting or rejecting ideas depending on whether the author of these ideas is in the coalition or opposition," Aldis Gobzems said.
