They are followed by the Lithuanian Peasant and Greens Union, who would receive 12% of the vote, with the conservative Homeland Union-Lithuanian Christian Democrats receiving 10.9% and the Labour Party, 8.8%.

The Order and Justice Party could receive 4.6% of the vote which would leave them below the 5% threshold required to claim Seimas seats.

The Liberal Movement would receive 2.9% of the vote.

Quite many, 17.5%, of the respondents were still unsure and 12.7% said they did not intend to vote.

The survey was conducted on August 26 to 29 and involved 1,005 respondents over the age of 18.
