Gentvilas believes that MP Aušrinė Armonaitė should also resign as the Liberal Movement's chairwoman.

"I've nothing against them personally, but I have to react, because they deliberately violated the party's statute and distanced themselves from it. I don't think they can be my deputies", he told the paper.

Šimašius on Tuesday announced his decision to establish a public election committee for next year's mayoral election.
