Incumbent Defense Minister Raimonds Vejonis of the Green Party and European Court of Justice judge Egils Levits are the two last candidates in the race to become Latvia’s next president, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Wednesday.

RIGA (Sputnik) — Two other candidates, opposition lawmakers Martins Bondars and Sergejs Dolgopolovs, have now been voted out by the parliament.

After neither candidate gained the required 51 percent of votes in the first round earlier in the day, two more rounds were held, with candidates being eliminated one by one.
