Lithuania’s Polish Party to Join Proposed Coalition, BNS Reports

The three Lithuanian parties seeking presidential approval to form a government agreed to add Lithuanian Polish Election Action to their proposed coalition, Baltic News Service reported, citing Social Democrat leader Algirdas Butkevicius.

That would give the coalition, which currently includes the Social Democrats, the Labor Party and Order & Justice, at least 85 seats in the 141-member Parliament in the capital, Vilnius, BNS said.
