Slesers hopes A Good Latvia will have a great success in the 10th Saeima electoral process, and that it will determine the composition of the next government. He stated that only such people will be allowed to hold portfolios within the next government.

Slesers declared that the next foreign minister as well as the entire group of Latvian ambassadors abroad should commit 80percent of their time to promoting Latvian businessmen’s interests in the world.

Andris Kele, who was nominated by For A Good Latvia for the post of finance minister, stated that Latvia is required to gain economic independence. “If we are forced to bear the burden of debts over time and years, then no development for the nation is feasible.”

Skele and For A Good Latvia board chairman Andrejs Ekis praised Slesers who has proven that a typical Riga boy can be a successful businessman, make a lot of money and end up being rich and Slesers always comes up with innovative ideas, they added. Ekis called Slesers a “businessman who has strayed into politics” and added, “I wish I could find a person here that can make me feel proud.”

Dombrovskis, last but not the least, can only be considered only if you are in favor of the ongoing “international financier occupation of Latvia”.
