With Latvia’s parliamentary election fast approaching, concern has been raised that eligible voters living in Brazil might not get the chance to cast their ballots.
The Central Elections Commission in Rīga has not been able to contact honorary consul Jānis Grimbergs in San Paulo, according to the Baltic News Service. As a result, information about the elections may not reach an estimated 100 eligible voters in Brazil.
In the 1998 parliamentary election, 118 votes were cast by Latvian citizens in Brazil.
The elections commission has asked the Foreign Ministry, to which Grimbergs reports, for assistance.
