The ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union (LVŽS) remained in second position and the Labor Party saw the largest increase in popularity compared with a month ago, the latest poll conducted by the pollster Spinter Tyrimai for Delfi.lt showed.

Some 17.8 percent of respondents said in May they would vote for the conservative Homeland Union if general elections were held next Sunday, up from 17.3 percent in April. The LVŽS would get 16.2 percent of the vote, up from 15.2 percent.

The 5 percent hurdle would also be cleared by the Order and Justice party with 7.7 percent (up from 7.4 percent in April), the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party with 5.4 percent (up from 5.2 percent), and the Lithuanian Social Democratic Labor Party with 4.9 percent (up from 4.6 percent).

The Labor Party saw support jump to 4.9 percent in May, from 1.7 percent a month ago, while the Liberal Movement saw its popularity fall to 3.8 percent, from 7 percent.

The Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania–Christian Families Alliance would receive 3.9 percent support, down from 4.5 percent.
