ForMin wants fewer requirements for referendum on dual citizenship

Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius has proposed considering fewer requirements for the referendum on dual citizenship.

Lithuania could legalise dual citizenship by scrapping 1990 dividing line - Seimas' speaker

Amendments to Lithuania's Law on Citizenship will be submitted to the parliament for approval, but the wording may be changed in the course of debates by scrapping the Mar. 11, 1990 dividing line, Viktoras Pranckietis, the speaker of the Seimas, said on Wednesday.

It was during this time that thousands of Lithuanians came to South Africa in droves, in search of a more peaceful life. And it is here where many have remained.

Seimas speaker sees law amendments as only way to broaden dual citizenship

Viktoras Pranckietis, the speaker of the Seimas, sees amendments to the Law on Citizenship as the only possible way of broadening dual citizenship and expects that the Constitutional Court will approve of the move.
