According to the constitution of February 15, 1922, which came into force again on July 6, 1993 (with amendments), Latvia is a parliamentary republic. Following the liberalization of the Citizenship Act in 1998, all those born in Latvia after August 21, 1991 automatically receive Latvian citizenship.

The head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who is elected by parliament for a period of four years (only one re-election in direct succession possible). It can be recalled by parliament with a two-thirds majority. The executive power is exercised by the government, chaired by the Prime Minister. The head of government and the members of the cabinet are appointed by the head of state; their appointment requires a vote of confidence by Parliament. A vote of no confidence against the Prime Minister as well as against individual ministers is permissible. The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament (Saeima), whose 100 members are elected for 3 years in the system of proportional representation according to constituency lists (voting rights from the age of 18). The electoral law of May 26, 1995 provides for a threshold clause of 5% at state level. Check rctoysadvice to see Riga Latvia.

National symbols

The national flag was introduced on February 27, 1990. It is crimson with a white stripe down the middle; the stripes are in a ratio of 2: 1: 2 to each other. The white color symbolizes law and truth, the reliability and honor of free citizens. Red represents the blood that had to be sacrificed in the past. – On February 17, 1990, the coat of arms, which was valid from 1922–40, was reintroduced. The three gold stars above the sign stand for the historical parts of Latgale, Livonia and Courland. The divided shield shows above a golden sun on a blue background for Latgale, in the split lower half a red lion walking upright heraldically to the left in the silver field for Courland and a silver griffin walking to the right on red for Livonia. Heraldic shield holders are the silver griffin on the left and the red lion on the right. Oak branches with a bow in the national colors spread out under the shield.

November 18th commemorates the proclamation of the first Latvian Republic in 1918, May 4th the renewed declaration of independence in 1990.


The party landscape is broad and is characterized by constant change processes. Important parties in the parliament last elected in 2014 are the pro-Russian social democratic party »Harmony« (SDPS; formed in 2010 through party merger), the conservative party »Unity« (V; created in 2010/11), the national-conservative grouping National Alliance / Everything for Latvia – Fatherland and Freedom (NA; created by amalgamation in 2011) and the Union of Greens and Peasants (ZZS). The ZZS was established in 2002 as an alliance of the Center Party Peasant Union of Latvia (LZS; founded 1917, re-founded in 1990) and the Latvian Green Party (LZP; founded 1990).


The Latvian Free Trade Union Confederation (LBAS; founded in 1990) has 20 individual trade unions with around 100,000 members.

The judiciary is in the hands of an independent judiciary guaranteed by the constitution. The judiciary consists on the lowest level of city and district courts, on the middle level of district courts (at the same time appellate instances for judgments of the lowest level) and of the Supreme Court as the highest instance. – The legal system has undergone extensive modernization in recent years and adapted to the requirements of the market economy.
