The party says Karbauskis and the biggest opposition party made the decision "in protest of the actions of the Seimas leadership and the Seimas majority, which eliminated the biggest opposition political group from the Seimas leadership".

"In the morning already, the group said it refused to take part in the political farce the Seimas leadership and the ruling majority are creating, having lost the political group's trust. Karbauskis will submit his request to the Central Election Commission during its upcoming sitting," the party said in a statement.
