Coalition talks possible with Polish party group, not Tomaszewski – Seimas’ speaker

He also hinted that the negotiations would only be held with the political group, not with the party’s leader MEP Waldemar Tomaszewski.

“If they stated willingness (to join) and so did we, I believe they would be able to join the coalition by endorsing our program,” Pranckietis told Žinių Radijas news radio on Wednesday morning.

LFGU, which has 57 mandates in Lithuania’s 141-seat parliament including Pranckietis , has signed a coalition agreement with the former political group of the Social Democratic Party. However, the group split in two and changed names, and the Social Democratic labor group supporting the LFGU now has 12 members, which leaves the ruling coalition with 69 votes, less than half of all parliamentary mandates.
