Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

It is the fourth consecutive win for the right in a month in national elections in Europe.

Prime Minister Kristinje Karins' center-right New Unity Party tripled its seats in parliament from 8 to 26, emerging as the largest party.  Karins has taken a very hard line on illegal immigration and fortified his border and sent in the army to stop Third World migrants crossing from Belarus.  His government instructed border guards to "use whatever force is necessary" to stop illegal aliens from entering.

On the other side of the spectrum, the pro-Russia socialist Harmony Party, which had won the largest number of seats in the last election, lost all 23 of its seats.

The nationalist conservative National Alliance held all 13 of its seats, while the new populist / nationalist right Latvia First Party won 9 seats in its first election contest.  Stability!, a new eurosceptic populist party with some following among Russian speakers, won 11 seats.

The center-right agrarian party split and ran as two parties this election, The United List,, which won 15 seats and the Union of Farmers and Greens which won 16. The latter party says it supports "green conservatism".

On the left, the Progressives, a new alliance of parties, won 10 seats.  That grouping includes socialists and the greens who are more like the climate alarmist greens seen elsewhere in Europe.  Unlike its fellow socialists of the Harmony Party, however, it does not tilt toward Russia.
