“If the voter turnout is high enough, we will win the elections, we will definitely win the first round. We would like to win enough mandates to be able to form a government of professionals and be the core of the coalition,” Karbauskis told journalists on Wednesday.
He admitted this may be a difficult task, if the Social Democrats and the conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats decide to form the ruling bloc, as they may become the main competitor of the Peasant and Green Union, according to opinion polls.
“If we have support of the people, the parties will hardly form a coalition and will then have to hear us,” Karbauskis added.
He did not rule out the possibility of a coalition with the two political forces, emphasizing that no talks had been held in advance.
