The conservatives’ “dance with swords” also enraged the coalition partners: is the union still there?

On Tuesday, G. Landsbergis convened the representatives of the parliamentary factions to discuss the possible date of early Seimas elections.

Representatives of the opposition announced that they would not participate in the “Gabriel Game”..

The meeting was eventually canceled, although some in power promised to attend.

However, at the same time, he noticed that this is one of the very rare cases when G. Landsbergis invites to discuss something.

During the two and a half years of their term, the ruling party never created such a genre as the coalition council, and during the entire period of joint work, they were said to have met up to 10 times to coordinate positions.

As some of those in power argue, the conservatives did not need it for the restructuring of the civil service, tax reform or other fundamental issues.

Let’s say that the Social Democrats considered that the initiative for early Seimas elections should not be taken by the leader of the conservatives, but by the Speaker of the Parliament, Viktorija Čmilytė-Nielsen.

She stated that she would not do this because she did not support the idea at all.

According to the sources, G. Landsbergis also encouraged her to take leadership in this matter.

“She said, ‘No.’ And why should it? It’s as if Petrus Gražulis was tasked with gathering support for the partnership,” one liberal quipped.

The recent twists and turns of the TS-LKD – due to early Seimas elections and the withdrawal of the Government – were news to the coalition partners.

In addition to the already significantly raised political temperature, G. Landsbergi’s poking at the politicians working in the Seimas brought even more anger at the height of the so-called check scandal.

Eugenijus Gentvilas, the elder of the Seimas Liberal movement faction, did not mince words: “I am furious”.

He demands that the leader of the conservatives provide data on his allegedly unjustified or illegally received office allowances both in the municipality and in the Seimas.

Here the question arose: does the ruling coalition, which consists of conservatives, liberals and liberals, still exist?

“Let the conservatives answer”

E. Gentvilas certainly did not hide his indignation against G. Landsberg.
