After the failed impeachment, Bastys last week submitted resignation, saying he did not want to affect the parliament’s performance.
Bastys won his mandate in Zanavykų single-mandate constituency, which includes Šakiai and a few polling stations in the districts of Kaunas and Vilkaviškis.
Lithuania’s parliament last week came a dozen votes short of stripping Bastys of his mandate over concealed ties with a former KGB agent.
After the failed impeachment ballot, parliamentary groups started blaming each other. A few thousand people last week gathered outside the parliament in protest against the decision to leave Bastys in parliament.
