Latvia Summary


The Republic of Latvia (64,589 sq. km; approximately 2.3 million inhabitants), a parliamentary democracy, was founded on November 18, 1918. The President, the Head of State, is elected by the Parliament for a four-year term.

Legislative power is in the hands of the unicameral Parliament which is composed of 100 members. Members of Parliament have a mandate of four years and are elected by direct popular vote. Independent judicial power exists in the Republic of Latvia, alongside the legislative and the executive power. Judicial power in the Republic of Latvia is vested in district (city) courts, regional courts, the Supreme Court and the Constitutional Court.

Latvia entered the European Union on 1 May 2004. Under the terms of the accession negotiations, candidate countries are obliged to transpose the environmental acquis (Community law) into national law by the date of accession. However, in the case of very recent EU legislation which entails significant investments and/or infrastructure upgrades, member states may negotiate transition periods beyond the accession date. Latvia’s negotiations with the EU on the environmental chapter of the accession programme were closed in December 2002. The country has been granted transitional arrangements with regard to volatile organic compound emissions from storage and distribution of petrol (until 2008), recovery and recycling of packaging and packaging waste (until 2007), temporary storage of hazardous waste as regards landfill of waste (until 2004), urban waste water treatment (until 2015), quality of drinking water (until 2015), existing integrated pollution prevention and control installations (until 2010 instead of 2007 for existing member states), asbestos (until 2004) and ionising radiation from medical equipment (until 2005).
