Latvia: The parliament voted against the withdrawal from Eurovision!

The parliament of the Republic of Latvia voted today against the withdrawal of this Baltic country from the Eurovision Song Contest!

Taking things from the beginning, a month ago an online petition took place through the ManaBalss platform in which citizens asked the withdrawal of the country from the pan-European song contest, (despite the fact that Latvia managed to qualify for the grand final for the first time since in 2016) gathering 11,300 signatures, surpassing the threshold of 10,000 signatures required for a petition to reach the Saeima, the country’s legislature. You can read more about the relevant petition in our previous article below.

In the vote that took place today with 87 members present out of 100 members of the parliament, 32 members voted for the resolution, 24 against and 31 abstained. The resolution was therefore rejected.
