"We had a meeting today and decided to start drafting questions – submitting questions is the first step for interpellation. Today we will try finalizing the questions among opposition groups," Gabrielius Landsbergis, elder of the opposition group of Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats (conservatives), told BNS on Monday.

In his words, the preliminary plan is to ask the minister about the situation surrounding prescription medication, as well as about the decision not to raise doctor wages from Jan. 1, hiring of persons of political confidence and pressure upon top executives of institutions subordinate to the Health Ministry to resign.
