Practically there are no distinctions either in economic policy, or in national, concerning the law on the citizenship, which parliament of Latvia has confirmed on the eve of vacation.
the Confidence of the former government of is based on support of the majority of parliament (at the last minute LP have supported 4 deputies of Economic fraction.
