The application was lodged in the name of Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis, also stating his home address, the tv3.lt news website reports.

The application was submitted by lawyer Dominykas Vanhara, and the goods and services associated with the registered brand are identified as "the organization of political gatherings".

Skirmantas Malinauskas, an adviser to the prime minister, confirmed the fact that the brand was registered in the name of the prime minister.

"Skvernelis reserved this name as it was used during his presidential election campaign. This slogan is directly linked with Skvernelis, therefore, there's a wish to keep it. It doesn’t mean Skvernelis is establishing a party or political movement," Malinauskas told the news website.

A legal entity name "For the Fatherland" was reserved with the Center of Registers in late August but the reservation ended on Dec 6.
