The matters were high on the agenda of the meeting of the party’s council in Telšiai, western Lithuania, on Saturday.

“So far, we have not developed a new candidate for president. I believe we will still discuss the candidate we could support as a party,” the Order and Justice party’s leader, MP Remigijus Žemaitaitis, said.

In his words, members of the council stated different positions on the matter, and no final decision was reached due to equal division of opinions.

The party’s council also approved top-10 lists for municipal councils in 30 districts and mayoral candidates for 23 cities and towns.
