During her meeting on Tuesday with representatives of the Lithuanian World Community, Seimas Speaker Loreta Graužinienė noted that, in her opinion, Lithuania's election system should be changed by 2020, while the first ones to try out e-voting should be Lithuanians residing abroad.

Graužinienė says that parliamentary parties currently are in agreement to stick to the Constitutional Court's ruling and change the map of constituencies in the country for the general elections in 2016. However, no essential changes in the system are planned for the upcoming year.

Under one of the proposed new models for the election system, 140 MPs would be elected in two-member constituencies, while the remaining 1 MP would be elected from a special constituency, established only for Lithuanians living abroad.

The leader of the Seimas believes that this could be a good chance to test an e-voting system.
