"Under the Constitution, secret ballot is mandatory in three cases only – on no-confidence in the government, the prime minister and one of the ministers.

"We need to stop covering under secret ballots," said Grybauskaitė in a position issued after MP Mindaugas Bastys survived an impeachment vote on Tuesday.
Grybauskaitė dismissed the ballot as a political show.
On Wednesday, Bastys said he would give up his MP mandate. He took the decision to step down after an initiative announced at the parliament to take a repeated vote on revocation of his mandate.
