"The Constitutional Court ruled that broadening the dual citizenship is only possible by changing the Constitution by referendum, so this is what will be done," Gintare Žukaitė, the head of the parliamentary speaker's office, told BNS.
"It is likely that the referendum will be initiated together with the presidential elections in 2019, as the elections draw the highest voter turnout," she added.
Under the Constitution, a referendum can be called by the Seimas or signatures of 300,000 citizens.
The presidential elections are scheduled for May of 2019.
Earlier on Friday, the Constitutional Court ruled that laws cannot stipulate the right to dual citizenship for persons who acquired passports of other European Union (EU) and NATO countries after the country regained independence in 1990.
