"To straighten out," Vytautas Kamblevičius, a member of the party's presidium, told BNS Lithuania.

In his words, 8 board members voted in favor of Gražulis' suspension and five were against.

Last Thursday, Gražulis admitted that a woman gave birth to his daughter last spring. The woman said she had been pressured by Gražulis to have an abortion.

Grazulis has four children with his former wife.
