The authority of the state has to be renewed, so that the society is directed towards common good. However, currently people in Latvia lack solidarity, Uldis Pīlēns, UPB Holding President, told the newspaper Latvijas Avīze.
The lack of solidarity intervenes with tackling the crisis together. The main guidelines are forgotten – it is strong and competitive society, where the powerful give a helpful hand to the weak, not vice verse, he says.
Similarly, Pīlēns points out if no considerable changes take place in the politics and the way of thinking, Latvia will fall into an even deeper crisis.
If the attitude towards the society of Latvia, pensioners, employees and employers and the state’s priority directions does not change, we will not boost the authority of the power neither in the eyes of international, nor local societies, Pilens is convinced.
Latvia Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis is a captive in this situation, because he has taken over the government with an almost completely signed Latvia and the International Monetary Fund memorandum, the businessman says, adding that this limits Dombrovskis power significantly.
