The ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union has to rely on the opposition in decision-making in the parliament, and if the coalition partners, the Social Democrats, no longer see the sense of being in the ruling bloc, they should let us know as soon as possible, says Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis of LFGU.

"I believe we should tell our partners very clearly in the current situation: if they think that presence in the ruling majority is harmful to them or that they feel discomfort or see no meaning, we should get the message as soon as possible," Skvernelis told journalists on Monday.

The prime minister said that formalizing a minority government with the opposition conservatives or other opposition groups was still too early.

"Many things depend on who becomes the new leader of the Social Democrats, the new leadership of the party and its capabilities and influence upon the work of Seimas members working in the Seimas. For now, I think that there is no reason to formalize (a minority government). Discussions with partners continue, and we are meeting later today to discuss certain principle issues," said Skvernelis.
