Opinion: There’s room in Lithuania for 5 million people

 (25)
You know it’s the political autumn with a little over a year left until the Seimas elections simply from the party leaders and MPs being on the lookout for opportunities to give their opinions. Necessarily in the manner so that the voter, after a summer break from talking heads on TV, could tap his representative on a soft shoulder and say: “Well said, I think so too.”

OPINION

About friends and allies

If during The Rīga Conference 2015 we began witnessing Kremlin’s adventure in Syria, today we observe casualties and the number deaths of this escapade. During the last 12 months, the world has beheld terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels, aggression of Russian football fans during Euro-2016 in France, and bombings in Aleppo. The Crimea remains occupied and the Russian aggression against Ukraine is still ongoing.

Opinion polls: a honeymoon for the “Peasants”

A honeymoon. Thusly political scientists comment on voters’ attitudes to the victors of the Seimas elections, the Lithuanian Peasant and Greens Union (LPGU) whose ratings continue to rise and have currently reached 26.8%. The Liberal Movement’s ratings are also rising, while the Social Democrats’ popularity continues to decrease, while the Conservatives could be said to be stagnating.

For Your Freedom and Ours?

For our freedom and yours, we heard this motto during the independence movement in 1990 inviting everyone--Lithuanians, us Jews, and others--to rally to fight for independence. And we rallied, believing that in that Lithuania--the Lithuania of today--we would all be equal, and not just before God. We thought we'd be equal before memory, and before our history. As brothers and sisters. Are we equal in memory? Are we equal before history?

After heated meeting – demarche from Christian wing of the Conservatives

The Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrat Party union Lithuanian Christian Democrats published a declaration regarding the situation in the party on 29 November.
