RIGA - The Saeima Budget and Finance (Taxation) Committee today endorsed the bill on the dissolution of Riga City Council ahead of its final reading in Saeima.
The parliamentary committee rejected all proposals submitted by the opposition, so no changes were made to the bill before it was sent for the second reading in Saeima.
Coalition lawmakers took into consideration the Saeima legal office's warnings about high constitutionality risks, as well as an effective lack of a violation warranting the council's dissolution.
