During a congress later in March, Lithuania's Order and Justice party, part of the current ruling coalition, will sign an agreement to unite with various political parties, public committees, non-governmental and public organizations.
Members of the Order and Justice party, part of the ruling coalition party in Lithuania and whose Rolandas Paksas leader has been accused of corruption, held a protest outside the house of Lithuanian state prosecutor, Irmantas Mikelionis, in Vilnius District yesterday.
Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė says that released transcripts of conversations between Environment Minister Kęstutis Trečiokas and Druskininkai mayor cast doubts on his suitability for the post. Trečiokas has responded that he will not step down, while the opposition wants an interpellation for the minister.
Most observers reckon that, after the Seimas elections, the nucleus of the ruling coalition will be made up of Social Democrats and Liberals, with Ramūnas Karbauskas’s Peasant and Green party and other independent parties contributing to the coalition as well.
