Pro-Russian Harmony tipped to be Latvia’s largest party following election | World news | The Guardian
The pro-Kremlin Harmony party looked set to hold the balance of power in Latvia, following a general election on Saturday, with an exit poll showing it topping the vote ahead of liberals.
A public TV exit poll showed Harmony had a 19.4% vote share, while the liberal pro-EU, pro-Nato For Development was in second place with 13.4%, ahead of the rightwing National Alliance on 12.6%.
Populists, who could help Harmony form a coalition, followed closely behind. The New Conservative party was on 12.4% and KPV LV showed 11.5%.
The Greens and Farmers Union of the prime minister, Māris Kučinskis, managed 9.7%.
