The conservative “Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats” has won the Lithuanian parliamentary elections. The largest opposition force received more than 24% of the vote, according to the results compiled so far.
So far, the votes of voters have been counted in most polling stations, so no significant changes are expected.
Behind the “Fatherland Union” is the ruling “Farmers ‘and Greens’ Union” with almost 18% of the vote, but the Labor Party with the 10% voter support is in third place. The Social Democrats, the Freedom Party and the Liberal Movement of the Republic of Lithuania have also overcome the 5% barrier.
However, it is too early to judge the distribution of parliamentary seats and the outlines of the new ruling coalition. There are 141 deputies in the Seimas, of which 70 are elected in multi-member constituencies by party lists and 71 in single-member constituencies.
Many single-member constituencies are likely to need a second round of elections on 25 October.
