Latvia prepares for local elections in new conditions

Together with the management of pandemic and vaccination process, one of the central events in Latvia’s political life this year will be local elections to be held in June 2021. The submission of lists of candidates for the local elections of 2021 took place from March 17 and has just completed on April 6, and pre-election campaign has started to run 120 days till Election day.

Why the local government elections are so important? The pandemic currently poses different challenges for political elite at national and local level as crises reveal things about governments that we might not have noticed otherwise. Municipalities also play an essential role in figuring out how to keep their communities safe now during coronavirus crisis. Recently the emergency situation in Latvia was lifted, and municipalities were allowed to decide on the restrictions depending on the number of cases in their region. It definitely will be a challenge for newly elected local governments.

Therefore, local elections will be in the focus of this briefing which will analyse what are main changes in the elections introduced this year, the impact of pandemic and administrative-territorial reform on elections and analyse the political competition.
