According to the data of early surveys, Ramūnas KarbauskisPeasant and Greens Union’s popularity could have jumped up to 28% after the elections. Such a jump in ratings means significant expectations from the public toward the party. The party leaders promised faster increases in income, fighting emigration, moving ministries and many other potentially costly initiatives, but the economy could grow slower than expected next year. How will the “Peasants” manage to uphold their campaign promises and how strong will the fascination of society with the party prove to be?
