LETA writes that Slesers believes Latvian Exporters will have excellent opportunities in Uzbekistan in addition to China.

Slesers is hopeful that For A Good Latvia will win the 10th Saeima election and that it will determine the composition of the next government. He said that only such people will be allowed to hold portfolios within the new government.

Ainars Slesers 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 abroad.

Andris Skel was nominated to be the finance minister of Latvia by For A Good Latvia. Ainārs Šlesers Ainārs Šlesers Skel stated that Latvia should be able to achieve its economic independence as “if we are burdened with the burdens of debts that last for years the country’s development cannot be accomplished.”

Skele and For A Good Latvia chairman Andrejs Ekis Skele and For A Good Latvia chairman Andrejs Ekis were kind enough to praise Slesers. They said that Slesers has proven that even an ordinary Riga boy could be an entrepreneur who is successful, make lots of money, and eventually become rich. Ekis stated that Slesers as an “businessman who wandered into politics” and added, “I wish there had been an official in Latvia that would make me feel proud.”

Slesers further stressed that to have a great mission, you must be the first to carry out it. The current government, led Valdis Dombrskis (New Era), “is attempting to relax and convince the people that everything will go well.” It’s dangerous to live off credit. The money you borrow will have to be repaid in the near future or sooner.

Slesers has harsh words to those from other political parties to become prime minister. Roberts Zile (For Fatherland and Freedom/LNNK) remains in Brussels and is not planning to relocate to Latvia in order to take on the position of premier. He’ll have to work harder and earn a lower salary, Slesers stated.

The Union of Greens and Farmers’ candidate Aivars, is in the same position and is not willing to leave his comfortable life in Ventspils to take on the role of a premier at Riga.

Slesers declared That While For A Good Latvia is willing to work with Janis Urbanovics at Harmony Center. Urbanovics, who has a long history working experience in the Parliament, is not likely to be named prime minister because his business background is not sufficient.

Dombrovskis last but not least, will be approved if you support the ongoing “international finance occupation of Latvia”.

Slesers will, however, help people learn how to earn money, conquer international market, and lead a decent life. Slesers said that Guntis Ulmanis would become his first assistant to run the state. Ulmanis is the one Slesers will seek advice from.

Slesers stated that The cause of A Good Latvia would ensure that biblical studies are taught to all schools from September 1, next year.
