Centenary of the Saeima

In 2022, the Parliament of the Republic of Latvia celebrates an important milestone: this year marks the centenary of the first convocation of the Saeima.

The 1st Saeima convened for its very first sitting on 7 November 1922 at 12:00. Along with the convening of the Parliament, the supreme law of the state – the Constitution (Satversme) – came into force to regulate the form of government and the principles of exercising public authority.

Now, the Saeima has already reached its 14th convocation, but the fundamental principles of the work and elections of the Parliament have remained unchanged through the years.

Let us celebrate the centenary of the Saeima by honouring and strengthening the Latvian tradition of parliamentary democracy.
