CORPORATE

The fate of the coalition – another struggle between G. Paluckas and M. Sinkevičius?

The contours of the Social Democrat position regarding the coalition’s fate are slowly emerging. And only the Jonava branch, led by Minister of Economy Mindaugas Sinkevičius, spoke up in support of continued work with the “Farmers”.

“Farmers” already in agreement with Polish Electoral Action over coalition?

While the Social Democrat Party branches proceed with consultations over the prospects of continuing work in the ruling coalition with the “Farmers”, the latter may already have come to terms with the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania – Christian Families Union (LLRA-KŠS). “I could neither confirm, nor deny this,” LLRA-KŠS leader Valdemar Tomashevski told LRT.lt after a Wednesday meeting of Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis and the “Farmer” management in Seimas.
