RIGA - Many voters in Latvia are insufficiently informed about the nearing European Parliament elections, and the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs has to do something about the situation, Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins (New Unity) said today.
LETA was told at the prime minister’s office that Karins has ordered Interior Minister Sandis Girgens (KPV LV) to ensure that the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs finds a solution for informing voters about the European Parliament elections as soon as possible.
“Although the European Parliament elections will take place in less than a month, we still receive information that a large part of the population have not been informed about the election procedure, including at which polling station they have to vote and about the option to change their polling station in Latvia or abroad by May 7. I have called on the interior minister to urgently find a solution for informing all residents of Latvia about the election procedure,” Karins said.
The European Parliament elections will take place on the last Saturday of May.
