Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis says he will vote in favour of stripping Kęstutis Pūkas of his mandate on sexual harassment allegations and expects other members of the Seimas to do the same.

"I think there's nothing to discuss. I think everyone has already made up their mind, and there's no need for any additional arguments or motives. Such a member of the Seimas can hardly represent voters in the parliament," he told reporters on Tuesday.

His comment follows the Constitutional Court's ruling that Pūkas violated the Constitution and breached oath when he allegedly sexually harassed his female assistant and young women who applied for the job of his assistant.

The ruling opens the way for the Seimas to proceed with impeachment proceedings against Pūkas.
