Two bills opening the way for impeached and removed Lithuanian president Rolandas Paksas to run for parliament were to be presented for parliamentary deliberation on Thursday, but were removed from the agenda at the last minute.
Lithuania's Seimas on Thursday gave its initial backing to a constitutional amendment that would allow leader of the Order and Justice party Rolandas Paksas who was impeached and removed as president to run for parliament and president.
A hundred Lithuanian MPs have drafted Constitutional amendments that should pave the way for Rolandas Paksas, a member of the ruling Order and Justice party who has been impeached as president in 2004 and banned from running for public office since then, to run for parliament and president again.
Lithuania's representative at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) Karolina Bubnytė has urged state institutions to focus its efforts on the implementation of the court's rulings on sex change surgeries and the right for ousted president Rolandas Paksas to run for elections.
