At the LFF Extraordinary Congress last October, members decided to remove Kaspars Gorkš, President of the organization. 67 members voted in favor of his suspension, 60 against and two abstained. Currently, the organization works without a president, but LFF Secretary General Edgars Pukinsk has the right to sign. Previously, plans to hold an LFF congress and presidential elections in April were disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, so it was postponed to July 3.

Gürgen is a politician who currently holds the position of Minister of the Interior. He expressed confidence that if elected, the posts could be combined. Previously, Ģirģens has not held any football-related positions.

Lashenko is the president of the Latvian Indoor Football Association. He has run for the presidency of the LFF before and has also been among the initiators of Gorkys’ dismissal.
