These parliamentary elections were considerably calmer than those in 2012, with fewer violations reported and fewer pre-trial investigations launched, Lithuanian Deputy Police Commissioner General Edvardas Šileris said on Sunday.

"For the period between the very start of the elections and 7:30 p.m. (on Sunday), we have 114 reports about violations, based on which 11 pre-trial investigations have been launched. In 2012, we had 502 reports and 32 pre-trial investigations," Šileris said at a news conference.

"The figures are much lower this year. As far as the law-enforcement is concerned, these elections were much calmer," he said.
