The candidate who receives more than half of the vote will be deemed the winner of the election. In case none of the participants receives the required majority, a run-off vote will be held on 24-25 April between the top two candidates of the first round.

The TS-LKD chairperson is elected for a 2-year term of office. The party which has 16,000 members is currently headed by Andrius Kubilius, leader of the Seimas Opposition.
