Lithuania’s Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius has claimed what he sees as the Lithuanian President’s negative attitude towards his government started when the Social Democrats refused to form a coalition government with Conservatives.
Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius says that a preliminary report from lawyers he received on Wednesday concludes that Environment Minister Kęstutis Trečiokas has not violated any laws. Still, the prime minister says he sees "ethical and moral" missteps on Trečiokas' part, without commenting on whether he will ask for the minister's resignation.
