Former Interior Minister Eriks Jekabsons, a leader of Latvia's First Party, told the Baltic News Service that he would quit the party.

"It can be described only as a misunderstanding but it is an irreversible misunderstanding," said party spokesman Edgars Vaikulis.

Jekabsons' choice to leave the party, he told BNS, was related to the board's decision to assess his activities within LPP at their Wednesday evening. He also said that he was not satisfied with the way the party had worked so far.
