New “poor ministers” on the radar of the opposition: the queue of possible interpellations is getting longer, eyes turned to A. Armonaitė

The opposition has already announced that it has collected the necessary signatures for the interpellation of D. Kreivis, but promises to seek even greater support from parliamentarians for it.

The Minister of Energy is asked questions about the situation in the electricity market, heating prices, renewable energy sources, the energy saving plan, changes in the price of biofuel and the like.

For its part, the opposition explains that “the situation in Lithuanian electricity and heat energy is critical”.

D. Kreivys is accused of incompetence, inactivity and possibly criminal negligence.

At the end of July, the opposition factions agreed that G. Landsbergis would also have to go through such a process of political trust verification in the Seimas..

However, the interpellation for him has been somewhat delayed, because it is said that the hotter issue of the Minister of Energy’s suitability for the position needs to be resolved first.

S. Gentvilas is also not forgotten. However, it is expected that his word on the procedure for calculating the norms of public green areas changed by his order as if the prosecutor’s office conducting an investigation for the protection of public interest.

Gintautas Paluckas, an elder of the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party (LSDP) faction of the Seimas, said that if A. Armonaitė does not make suggestions on how to help businesses experiencing difficulties due to the energy crisis, the question of her political responsibility will also be raised.

In the opinion of Vytautas Magnus University’s Department of Public Communication associate professor Ignas Kalpoks, a certain opportunism can be seen in such behavior of the opposition. The situation is rarely favorable for her now, and she hastens to take advantage of it.

On the other hand, as he pointed out, it must be recognized that, at least in some issues, the Government did not do everything to prevent the current situation.

According to Virginijas Būdiene, director of the Vilnius Institute of Political Analysis, interpellation is a natural political process for ministers.

True, in her opinion, it is important that the opposition does not play games and forget what geopolitical reality is outside the window.

“Hot Spots”

According to G. Paluckas, the interpellation of D. Kreivi is moving forward.

The same process has stopped for G. Landsberg for now.

“One by one from the soil, one by one. So you don’t grab everyone at once, because that would be pointless. I mean, there is no formality here – after all, the ministers must prepare to answer questions and everyone must hear those answers: not only the opposition, but also, most importantly, the public.
