The Latvian Association of Regions (Latvian: Latvijas Reģionu apvienība) is a centrist[2][3][4] political alliance in Latvia. It was founded on 13 March 2014 and is headed by Nellija Kleinberga. It won 8 seats in the Saeima at the 2014 parliamentary election.[5] The LRA contested the elections as a political alliance of several smaller regionalist parties, including the Regional Alliance, the LSDSP, the Christian Democratic Union and the Vidzeme Party. The first leader of the alliance was Mārtiņš Bondars until stepping down and leaving the alliance in 2017.[6][7] In the lead up to the 2018 elections, the LSDSP and the Christian Democrats left the alliance.
