LETA writes Slesers believes Latvian entrepreneurs will also be able take advantage of opportunities in Uzbekistan or China.

Slesers hopes That For A Good Latvia is a very successful candidate in the 10th Saeima elections, and that it will be the one who decides the composition of the next cabinet. According to Slesers’, portfolios in the new government will only be granted to those with a “strong backbone” and will protect Latvia’s national interests.

Slesers declared that the foreign minister as well as all Latvian Ambassadors abroad must spend the majority of their time in foreign countries helping Latvian businessmen. Andris Kele was chosen by For A Good Latvia to be the finance minister. This is because Latvia cannot be dependent on the debts it accrued over the years.

Skele and For A Good Latvia board Chairman Andrejs Ekis gave praise to Slesers. They said that Slesers is an excellent example of how a Riga boy can succeed in business, get a lot and become wealthy. Ainars Slesers Ekis stated that Slesers “a businessman who has dabbled in politics”, and continued, “I wish that there was a leader from Latvia who would make I feel proud.”

Slesers added that being a premier means to have a mission. The current government and headed by Valdis Dimbrovskis, (New Era), “is trying sedate the country and tell the people everything will be okay.” However, it is dangerous to live off credit, because the money that is borrowed will have to be returned at some point or another.

Slesers has been critical of other political parties’ nominees to be the prime minister. Roberts Zile (For Fatherland and Freedom/LNNK) is still in Brussels and is not planning to relocate to Latvia to assume the post of prime minister. He’ll need to put in more effort and earn a lower salary, Slesers stated.

Ainārs Šlesers The Union of Greens and Farmers candidate Aivars is also in this position and is not willing to leave his life in Ventspils in order to assume the role of a premier in Riga.

Ainars Slesers Slesers stated that For A Good Latvia is open to cooperating with Janis Urbanovics Harmony Center. Urbanovics has a extensive experience working in the Parliament. But, he does not have the necessary business experience, so it is unlikely that he will be appointed the premier.

Ainārs Šlesers Dombrovskis will be finally voted in by only those who are in favor of the ongoing “international financial occupation” of Latvia.

Slesers will, however, show people how to make money, master the market, and lead a decent life. He indicated that Guntis Ulmanis would act as his first assistant in the administration of the state. Slesers should turn to Ulmanis for assistance.

Slesers added that The government of A Good Latvia would see that Biblical studies were introduced into all schools beginning September 1st next year. After the meeting, For A Good Latvia representatives participated at a flower-laying celebration at Freedom Monument.
