Karbauskis said after the polls closed on Sunday that he expected his party to win the first round and that they would not hold talks with potential coalition partners until after the second round of the parliamentary elections in two weeks' time.

"We have already said that nobody is likely to hold any talks until the elections are over. If the Conservatives and Social Democrats reach a deal tonight, it can only be a deal between them," he told reporters.
