Greta Kildišienė, a lawmaker of the ruling Lithuanian Peasant and Green Union (LPGU), has made the headlines after it emerged that she was using a car owned by a company of Ramūnas Karbauskis, the party's leader.

Viktoras Pranckietis, the speaker of the Seimas, said on Wednesday that the story had caused moral damage to the parliament.

"It is perhaps a good lesson for other members of the Seimas, too. If we still think that something may go unnoticed, we must always think that we have to be open. We are public figures and we have to speak openly about our choices," Pranckietis, who is also a LPGU member, told the Žinių Radijas radio station.

Karbauskis confirmed last weekend that Kildišienė was using a Range Rover owned by his company Agrokoncernas. Unofficial source have told BNS that Kildišienė's mother is paying for the car in installments under a lease-to-own arrangement.

Karbauskis and Kildišienė have strongly denied media speculation that they are romantically involved. The LPGU chairman says that his wife and sons live in Spain.
