Almost 80 percent of Latvians seek ban on face-covering clothing
The vast majority of Latvians, or 77 percent, support a legislative initiative calling for a ban on wearing face-covering garments in public places, a new TNS poll shows.
The survey reveals that 42 percent of respondents strongly support the ban and 35 percent tend to support it.
Meanwhile 16 percent do not support the Justice Ministry's proposal to ban wearing face-covering clothes like Muslim burqas in public places.
