With the Seimas election having concluded, it is time to sum up the results. The overall victory goes to the Lithuanian Peasant and Greens Union (LVŽS) which has earned 54 Seimas seats. Add another two independents, who now associate with the party roll – 56. This is the largest single-party victory based on mandate numbers since the 1996 victory of the Homeland Union of 68 mandates.
