The Seimas passed, in a vote of 68 to 33 with four abstentions, a resolution to accept his interpellation answers.

The minister received the backing of lawmakers from the ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union (LFGU), the Lithuanian Social Democratic Labour political group, the opposition Order and Justice, and the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania-Christian Families Alliance.

The opposition Homeland Union-Lithuanian Christian Democrats, the Liberal Movement and the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party's political group voted against or abstained.

The opposition had put questions to Veryga about health professionals' salaries, the situation surrounding prescription medications, and the Health Ministry's staff.
