Latvia: Development/For party alliance changes name to PLI

The Latvian alliance of liberal political parties, Development/For, has changed its name to PLI, LETA reports. Miks Celmins, executive chairman of Movement For, said that PLI’s initials stood for the three parties that formed the alliance: Movement For (Kustiba Par), For Latvia’s Development (Latvijas Attistibai), and Growth (Izaugsme). Celmins said that PLI would not coordinate any political activities, however. In December 2022, the three parties decided to work independently of each other. PLI’s co-chairmen are Movement For’s Celmins and Latvijas Attistibai’s board member, Arturs Toms Pless. PLI’s third board member is Izaugsme’s Juris Zilko.
