The liberals won 98 seats during the last local elections in 2011 and ranked seventh. The party jumped to the third place with 216 mandates following the Sunday vote.

Meanwhile the Order and Justice party has lost considerably as the number of the party' council seats almost halved, from 155 to 84.

The coalition of the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania and the Russian Alliance has overall won 70 mandates, compared to 61 in 2011.
