Media accreditation for the ceremonial sitting of the Saeima on 4 May


The ceremonial sitting of the Saeima and a concert in honour of the 25th anniversary of the renewal of independence of the Republic of Latvia will be held in the Latvian National Theatre on 4 May 2015, at 12:00.

Media representatives wishing to cover the proceedings of the ceremonial sitting of the Saeima will need to obtain special accreditation. In order to apply for accreditation, media representatives should contact the Saeima Press Service by e-mail or by telephone +371 67087266. Media representatives accredited for work at the Saeima must indicate their name and surname, while other media representatives must indicate their name, surname, ID number, medium which they represent and phone number.

Media representatives can apply for special accreditation until 27 April 2015.

Due to the limited number of seats, special accreditation will be granted to no more than one journalist and one photographer or cameraman from each medium.

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available seats, preference will be given to the earliest applicants. Application for accreditation does not guarantee the granting of accreditation.

The ceremonial sitting will be followed by a concert. NB! Filming will be allowed only during the first composition and photographing – during the first 30 seconds of the concert (without flash). After the first composition, photographs and cameramen will have an opportunity to leave the hall.

It will be possible to interview the audience during the intervention or after the concert. NB! During the concert journalists and cameramen will be seated in different sections.

Media representatives will be informed in person about granted accreditation. Special accreditation cards will be issued upon arrival in person at the Public Relations Department of the Saeima, Jēkaba iela 16, Room 114 on 29 and 30 April until 16:00, or at the National Theatre from 10:00 to 11:20 on 4 May.

Please observe the dress code for the event – lounge suit. The organisers have the right to refuse entry to persons in inappropriate attire.

The special accreditation card should be worn visibly at all times during the event.
