The President of Latvia Egils Levits twice brought the inaugural oath due to the fact that he made the mistake of reading her text. Reports about it “Sputnik Latvia”.
The ceremony was held at the extraordinary session of the Latvian Saeima. The oath was to end with the words “I will act justly to all and to carry out its functions honestly,” but the levitra confused words and instead of “conscience” (Latv. sirdsapziņa) said “consciousness” (apziņa).
After that, Parliament speaker Inara Murniece asked the Levitra to repeat the oath to her text exactly in accordance with the Constitution.
The levitra was elected to the position of President at the next meeting of the Seimas, which took place on may 29. His candidacy was supported by 61 deputies from the 100. For the first time in the country’s history voting was open. The term of office of Levitra will expire in four years, on July 8, 2023.
