According to Skvernelis, a blow that was delivered to the country’s political system when law-enforcement officials last week brought suspicions in a political corruption case against the Liberal Movement and the Labor Party prompted him to consider joining the LFGU.
“As to the strengthening of the party system and making it more transparent, such discussion are underway in our (group) as well, but I think that perhaps it should be a joint decision involving not only myself, but also all members of the Seimas who ran (for parliament) on the LFGU ticket,” the prime minister told reporters.
“The LFGU’s decision is very important, too,” he added.
Skvernelis said that the question of whether he could become the LFGU chairman was premature.
Thirty-three out of 56 members of the LFGU political group in the Seimas are members of the party.
