Text size Aa Aa

Exit poll results in Latvia are indicating an historic shift in the politics of the Baltic state.
 
Two pro-Russian parties have appeared to have made big gains possibly taking 20 per cent of the
vote.
 
The European elections are providing a tough test for Latvia’s government, whose popularity has tumbled over the economy.
 
Analysts predict several of the five parties that make up the governing coalition will take a battering.
 
Heavy losses could further destabalise an already fragile administration.
