Lithuanian President Against Coalition With Labor: Delfi

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite reiterated her opposition to any cabinet that includes the Labor Party, rejecting a compromise proposed by a coalition formed this week after elections, delfi.lt reported.

Excluding some members of the Labor Party from high posts, as proposed by the coalition of the Social Democrats, Labor and Order & Justice, isn’t sufficient, Grybauskaite told reporters today in Kaunas, according to delfi.lt.

The president, who must approve a new prime minister and Cabinet, this week asked the Baltic nation’s Constitutional Court to rule on the validity of parliamentary voting rounds on Oct. 14 and Oct. 28 after the election commission said bribery may have influenced several thousand votes.

The court’s ruling, expected Nov. 10, will determine which of three possible coalitions will be able to form a government and who will be offered the premiership, Grybauskaite said without elaborating, delfi.lt reported.
