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.

The vast majority of Lithuanian Jews have found good reason to leave at one time or another in history, whether it was unrest in Europe between 1868 and 1914, or the economic hardship that characterised the period from Lithuania’s independence in 1918 until June 1940 when the Soviet army took control. 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.

The amendments on dual citizenship drafted by the opposition conservatives openly run counter to the Constitutional doctrine, says Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė.
