The author of the initiative Oleg Belousov proposes to amend paragraph 5 of the Constitution, which provides that "the Seimas shall consist of one hundred representatives of the people". Belousov believes that the diet will be healthy and with 50 deputies that will allow you to save money.
Belousov indicates that each member has 1-2 assistants who are actually doing it instead of all the hard work. According to Belousov, if you reduce the number of MPs will not have to reduce the number of hospitals or to cut wages. 50 deputies will be easier to make decisions than 100, said the person who filed the initiative.
The initiative was placed on the portal in 2012, when Latvia overcame the economic crisis.
