              FILE - Latvia's Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins speaks with the media as he arrives for an EU summit in Brussels, June 23, 2022. Latvians will be voting on Saturday, Oct. 1 in a general election that has been substantially influenced by neighboring Russia’s attack on Ukraine, political disintegration among the Baltic country’s sizable ethnic-Russian minority as well as issues around the economy, including high energy costs. Polls show that Karins’ New Unity party, which heads the current four-party center-right minority coalition is likely to emerge as the top vote-getter, with a projected 13% to 20% of the votes cast by the 1.5 million eligible voters. .
