Kurzemes Kungu Klubs
Kurzemes Kungu Klubs (Latvian: Club of Kurzeme Gentlemen) was a political party in Latvia. It was created in 5 November 2009 after renaming Par Dzimteni and disestablished in 16 February 2010 when it was renamed Par Dzimto Kurzemi.
Demise of PDz
Par Dzimteni was struggling after Red.Fox left the party. Some of its former members who recently left Nacionāldemokrātu partija decided to rejoin PDz, one of them was ex-president Kurzemes Karalis Kristaps. Under his leadership the party enjoyed a brief renaissance and KKK was briefly president after NDP's Nameisis resigned.
Establishment of KKK
During the November presidential elections Kristaps was shown as a candidate of Kurzemes Kungu Klubs. In a five candidate race he was fourth. A few days later there was an official announcement about the establishment of KKK party, "based on the ruins of an old and formerly strong party".
During their first congress elections, the party received 4 places out of 40, one more than before. Nameisis, who announced he joined KKK just to be elected and that he would leave the party after the elections, was also elected. In December presidential elections, Kristaps, with the support of Pro Patria, won with, at the moment, smallest percent of votes for the winner in the history of Latvia.
In the congress elections KKK won 8 seats, although two of these people were people Kristaps claimed to be traitors of the country and two others were a part of Polish TO group.
In January Kristaps lost the re-election and was fourth in the closest presidential election of Latvia. He then resigned from being the party president and left the country. phab became the new party president until the following party president elections, when Oktavia was elected. The party won just 3 seats in the congress elections and didn't support a candidate during presidential elections.
In the following party president elections Oktavia decided not to candidate. aivvv and Bumtease, two experienced politicians were the main candidates. aivvv won and renamed the party.
Kurzemes Kungu Klubs for unknown reasons reestablished in the post-Latvia-Estonia War Latvia.
