The Lithuanian World Community (PLB) has stressed that the votes (or lack of) of the many Lithuanian expatriates could decide up to half of the Seimas’ composition. A PLB announcement urges expatriates to actively register for voting and vote responsibly with the registration deadline tomorrow.
A long time has passed since the creation of the Lithuanian World Community (PLB, Pasaulio lietuviu bendruomenė) and the Lithuanian-American Community (JAV lietuvių bendruomenė). The World Lithuanian-American Community definitely served a tremendous purpose when it was formed. Its charter is a worthwhile read for every Lithuanian both in Lithuania and in the diaspora. Both organizations continue to do a tremendous amount of good work.
