"I have no doubt the veto will be rejected. If all colleagues will be present in the Seimas, … we will manage to do that," Ramūnas Karbauskis, leader of the Lithuanian Farmer and Greens Union, told BNS Lithuania on Friday.

Earlier in the day, the president vetoed two bills related to the LSDDP subsidy.
