The opposition put questions to Veryga about health professionals' salaries, the situation surrounding prescription medications, and the Health Ministry's staff.

After discussing the interpellation, the Seimas will set up a commission to draft a resolution on whether to approve or disapprove of the minister's answers.

At least 71 votes in the 141-member parliament are necessary to adopt a draft resolution that proposes not to accept interpellation answers and to declare no-confidence in a minister. If the no-confidence motion is passed, the minister must resign.
