Latvian Provisional Government

The Latvian Provisional Government (1918–1920) was formed on November 18, 1918 by the People's Council of Latvia. The Provisional Government was led by Kārlis Ulmanis, leader of the Agrarian Union, who was chosen to be prime minister. In December, ministries were created.
