Latvija

Latvia changed its president

I think that this does not affect the world.
New is the President of Andris Berzins.
I know that he is a old man.
Do not know.

Cool.
What's the potential impact upon Latvia and the world? Who's the new president? What are his/her outlooks? How much opposition are they likely to face to implement their agendas?

I.e. Why'd you make the thread, what's the perspective here?

Perhaps it is an indication of the level of democracy. People don't particularly care, a President's a President? Twisted Evil On the other hand, this YouTube upload from a Latvian does tell the story. They're not too impressed with the new guy:


This is a report about the appointment in the BBC - looks as though Latvia has the same problems as Egypt.
Quote:
Mr Berzins defeated incumbent Valdis Zatlers, winning the support of 53 MPs out of 100 in a parliamentary ballot.

The outgoing president had called for radical reforms to curb the corrupting influence of oligarchs.

Mr Berzins, 66, is a former banker turned politician in the Greens and Farmers' Union.

President Zatlers, 56, had been widely expected to win the vote, until he accused lawmakers last Saturday of being soft on corruption and called a referendum on the dissolution of parliament.
