Slesers believes Latvian exporters also will have great opportunities in Uzbekistan and China, writes LETA.

Slesers hopes that For A Good Latvia will be extremely successful in the 10th Saeima elections and that it will ultimately decide the makeup of the next government. Only those with "a solid backbone" and are able to defend the national interest of Latvia will be given portfolios in the new government, he stated. Slesers declared that the new foreign minister and all Latvian ambassadors abroad must spend the majority of their time abroad helping Latvian businessmen.

Andris Skele, who has been named finance minister by For A Good Latvia, stressed that Latvia should achieve its economic independence, as "if we must carry the burden of debts for years, no national progress will be feasible."

Skele and For A Good Latvia chairman Andrejs Ekis Skele and For A Good Latvia chairman Andrejs Ekis were kind enough to praise Slesers. They said that Slesers has proved that even the smallest Riga boy could be a successful businessman, earn an enormous amount of money and grow wealthy. Ekis said Slesers as a "businessman who has turned to politics" He then said, "I wish I could find a person here that could make us feel happy."

Slesers highlighted the importance of having a mission as the main method of achieving it. The current government, headed by Valdisdombrovskis(New Era), "is trying taint the nationby telling the people that everything is perfect." It's risky to live on credit. The money you take out must be paid back sooner or later.

Slesers was critical of other political parties' candidates to be the next prime minister. Roberts Zile (For Fatherland And Freedom/LNNK). Slesers stated that he is not prepared to move from his comfy seat in the European Parliament and become the premier of Latvia. This will require the work of a greater number of people and get a lower wage.

The Union of Greens and Farmers candidate, Aivars Lembergs is in the same situation and would hardly wish to alter his life in Ventspils for the responsibilities of a prime minister in Riga. Slesers explained that For a Good Latvia is available to work with Janis Urbanovics Harmony Center. Urbanovics does have extensive experience in his work in the parliament but the fact is that he does not have enough experience in business.

Dombrovskis' election will be ratified by those who back the current "international finance occupation of Latvia."

Slesers, on the other hand can help people earn money, gain access to international markets and live with dignity. He said that Guntis Ulmanis will serve as his first assistant the administration of the state. Ulmanis is the person Slesers will consult for advice.

Slesers also said that For A Good Latvia would see to that Biblical studies are introduced to all schools from September 1 next year.
