After casting his ballot in Vilnius on Sunday afternoon, Skvernelis said he was not yet considering any potential posts, assuring he was not holding coalition negotiations with other parties until the end of the election.

“On the Seimas election day, let’s talk about what is the most important today – becoming a member of the parliament and properly representing own electorate,” said Skvernelis. “We are talking to everyone, I think more specific conversations will be possible after the first round. I believe we are a central political force closer to the center.”

He applauded the higher early voter turnout from the last parliamentary elections of 2012.

“The more people come come, the more objective the choice will be. We expect and think that our success would depend on the voter turnout,” he told BNS.

During the 2012 parliamentary elections, the Peasant and Green Union failed to cross the 5 percent threshold in multi-member voting, securing a single mandate in Lithuania’s 141-seat parliament after both rounds.
