"It could cost around about a couple of millions of euros, in addition to the costs of organizing the elections," Laura Matjošaitytė said during a meeting of the parliament's working group for preparations for a dual citizenship referendum.

Funds will be needed to pay salaries to members of election commissions, to print bulletins, and to run an awareness campaign, the chairwoman said, adding that she would be able to give more exact figures next week.

Lithuanian officials say that a dual citizen referendum could be held in tandem with next year's presidential elections.
