A Lithuanian member of the European Parliament, Antanas Guoga, who has Australian citizenship, has recently discovered that Lithuanian laws do not allow foreign citizens to run in parliamentary elections. Guoga was planning to be a candidate of the Liberal Movement party in Vilkaviškis single-member constituency and challenge the incumbent Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius in 2016.
