One million Latvian citizens boycotted the EU elections

Summary of Disinformation

One million Latvian citizens boycotted the EU elections.


Manipulative headline. We do not know about the motives of the people who did not cast their ballot.

Turnout in Latvia was 33.5%, a slight improvement on the previous figure of 27% in 2014, but far behind the 54% participation rate a decade ago.
