Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė says her decision on spelling of first and last names of Lithuanian citizens with Latin letters that do not exist in the Lithuanian alphabet will depend on the conclusion of the state language commission.

"I will have to refer to the interpretation of the Constitutional Court, which said that the issue should be sealed and that the State Commission of the Lithuanian Language would have to give its opinion, and my decision on supporting or rejecting the bill can only be made after I receive the conclusions," Grybauskaitė told journalists on Friday.

Earlier this week, half of Lithuanian MPs registered a bill on spelling of first and last names in identification documents, which would allow the use of non-Lithuanian Latin letters on the main page of passports.
