MPs Agnė Bilotaitė and Arvydas Anušauskas, both members of the parliamentary Anticorruption Commission, referred to a publication that appeared last week, reporting that back in 2012, the LSDP compiled a list of 151 people for whom the party wanted to find jobs.

The article quotes Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius, who denies he was following any list. However, MP Algirdas Sysas, the chief of the LSDP election headquarters, did not deny that there was such a list. He said there was nothing wrong in making such lists, calling it "a personnel policy".
