Audrius Navickas sworn in as MP

DELFI / Orestas Gurevičius

Navickas replaces Rokas Zilinskas, his fellow conservative who passed away last week.

Navickas, a religious expert and publicist and a former editor-in-chief of the portal, was the highest-placed among the candidates on the Homeland Union’s election list who did not pass the threshold to be elected to the parliament last fall.

The Homeland Union’s political group in the Seimas has 31 members after Navickas joined it on Thursday.

Zilinskas died after a complicated disease at the age of 45. The former journalist was elected to the parliament in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
