Latvia's First Party/Latvian Way

ⓘ Latvias First Party/Latvian Way

Latvias First Party/Latvian Way was a political party in Latvia created from the merger of the Christian-democratic Latvias First Party, the liberal Latvian Way and the regionalist We for our District and Vidzeme Union in 2007. These parties had already formed an electoral coalition in 2006. The unified party was led by Ainārs Slesers, the former LPP chairman. It was dissolved in December 2011.

At the 2010 election, the party ran as part of For a Good Latvia with the Peoples Party. LPP/LC won three of the alliances eight seats. After the Peoples Partys dissolution in 2011, the party renamed itself the Slesers LPP/LC Reform Party and ran alone in the 2011 election, but won only 2.4% of the vote: failing to cross the 5% electoral threshold, and so lost all of its seats. The party then had its name reverted to LPP/LC. At the end of 2011, the party congress decided to disband the party.
