EU Commissioner Andriukaitis: Paksas should not be held hostage to the situation

Lithuania should adopt constitutional amendments to allow Rolandas Paksas, the impeached former president, to run for elected office, says Vytenis Andriukaitis, European commissioner for health and food safety and member of the Social Democratic Party of Lithuania. However, he is critical of a recent resolution passed by the Lithuanian parliament, advocating Paksas' rehabilitation.
