Centre-Right takes the lead after the Parliamentary elections in Lithuania. Joseph Daul MEP, Chairman of the EPP-ED Group

Brussels , 13 October 2008

On Monday, October 13, the Chairman of the EPP-ED Group Joseph Daul warmly congratulated the leaders and members of the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats on the results of the Parliamentary elections in Lithuania.

"Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats has always stood for the defense of fundamental European values and freedoms. I am very happy that the Lithuanian people have expressed their support for the traditional political party which has long experience of restoring and building an independent democratic Lithuanian State. The legacy of the independence movement of Sąjūdis, the principles of freedom as well as taking responsibility during very difficult times were always the foundation stones of the Homeland Union-LKD", said the Chairman of the EPP-ED.

On October 12, the elections to the Seimas (Parliament) of Republic of Lithuania took place. In the proportional vote the HU-LKD got 19.27 percent support and became the leader in the elections. However the final results will be known in two weeks after the second round vote in single mandate constituencies where half the seats of the parliament out of total 141 will be elected.

"I wish Andrius Kubilius a lot of success, the Chairman of the HU-LKD and the members of the party during the second round in two weeks in pursuing their goals. I hope that our friends will form a strong government in Lithuania. On the European level I am happy to continue our daily political work with the active and experienced MEPs of HU-LKD in our political Group Vytautas Landsbergis and Laima Liucija Andrikienė", acknowledged Joseph Daul.
