RIGA - KPV LV parliament member Ivars Puga told LETA today that the party's Saeima group must first try to find a consensus on how to work with one another going forward.

Asked whether there is a split ahead within the party, Puga admitted that the current situation is not an ordinary one, as this is the first time that a party is part of a government coalition without all of its MPs - some are a part of the coalition, while some are part of the opposition.

Puga agreed with what his party colleague MP Janina Kursite said - that the party should vote together on crucial issues, like the national budget, while MPs could have a free vote on matters less crucial to the nation.

He said that KPV LV will hold a Saeima group meeting on Wednesday to discuss its current situation and how to move forward.

As reported, 11 out of the 16 MPs from KPV LV are part of the Krisjanis Karins government, while five are part of the opposition.
