Lithuanian Opposition Moves Closer to Coalition Pact, BNS Says

Lithuania’s Social Democrats, who won this month’s election, plan to sign a coalition agreement as soon as next week with a party the country’s president wants to exclude from the government, the Baltic News Service news service reported.

“We’re moving systematically toward our goal” of signing the agreement on Nov. 6, Social Democrat leader Algirdas Butkevicius said after talks today with the Labor Party and Order & Justice in Vilnius, the capital, according to BNS.
