The Liberal Movement party, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, distributed awards to the best members of the party. Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Šimašius was named the politician of the year for 2015.
Lithuanian MEP Antanas Guoga, member of the Liberal Movement party, says he has decided to renounce his Australian citizenship. The move might allow him to run for a seat in the Lithuanian parliament, but Guoga says it is not the reason he decided to do it.
The Liberal Movement are securely the second-most popular party in Lithuania after the Social Democrats, according to opinion polls, but despite their good ratings there are reasons for unease for the party in the run up to this year’s elections.
