Before quarrels on reforms in public, the ruling majority should discuss them within the coalition, Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė said after the ruling coalition's conflict over restructuring of the higher education sector.

"What I truly miss is a deeper dialogue within the coalition, a deeper and more detailed discussion of reforms before shifting the disputes to public. This is my with to the ruling majority," Grybauskaitė told journalists on Thursday.

In her words, disputes within the ruling majority on various reforms is a good thing: "It is important that the common goals were formulated during the elections and stated in the governmental program."

"Will the ruling parties manage to continue working efficiently? I can only say that the must. It is their duty. This is why they were elected – people expect the reforms to become reality, therefore, it is crucial to find the ways and measures to agree among themselves and seek implementation of the reforms," said the president.
