The possibility of taking matters to court has been mentioned.

According to the VRK chairwoman Laura Matjošaitytė, there were discussions earlier of allowing civic electoral committees to join into coalitions, however legal regulation has not changed and the law does not specify such coalitions. Based on the law, with no less than 35 days to go until elections, parties can form coalitions and merge electoral rolls.

The municipal elections are to be held on March 3.
