"Mr President, why, in your opinion, does the European Parliament pass resolutions? Precisely so that they may be implemented. However, it appears that the Latvian government has no intention of implementing the resolution of 11 March 2004. That resolution clearly states that the right to vote in local elections must be granted to people who are permanently resident on Latvian territory. To the question of when Latvia will implement this resolution, we shall possibly receive the answer: ‘Kad pūcei aste ziedēs’ (in Latvian). In Russian, one would say: ‘Kogda rak na gore svistnet’, and in English: ‘When pigs fly’. It comes down to this – either pigs will start to fly or we must collectively put an end to discrimination against 335 000 people living in Latvia. Thank you."@en1
