There are no grounds to launch impeachment proceedings against Artūras Skardžius, deputy head of the ruling Lithuanian Social Democratic Labor political group in the Seimas, an ad-hoc commission decided on Wednesday.

Liberal MP Eugenijus Gentvilas told BNS that eight lawmakers voted in favor of the decision in a closed meeting, adding that he abstained.

The commission launched its investigation following a request from several lawmakers who said that Skardžius' family had leased land for wind farms under exceptional conditions and that the member of the Seimas had tabled proposals on renewable energy resources.
