Epilogue no. 2 and prologue no. 1 to the coming four years: single-mandate lottery in the second round and a coalition. Ligitas Kernagis who failed to obtain a mandate in this election once sang “Ratings, ratings, ratings everywhere, single-mandate in hand, money elsewhere”. We will not be talking about money in this article because much has already been said while analysing the financial declarations of candidates. Today we speak of that which everyone is concerned with – who will win the second round and form the coalition government.
