Only 4 percent of the polled said they would support these parties. Two percent of the respondents indicated they would vote for the Lithuanian Liberty Union (Liberals), while 1 percent would vote for the Lithuanian Green Party.

More than a quarter, 27 percent, of voters would not vote in the parliamentary election or have not yet decided whom to support.

Over the last month, the ratings of parties did not change or changed just slightly.
