Pranckietis says a transparent way to fund the newly-established Social Democratic Labor Party of Lithuania must be found.

"I believe the veto should be considered and should also look into the proposals," the speaker told BNS Lithuania.

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