Vygaudas Ušackas, one of the candidates, the supporters of the Conservative Party, on Saturday evening, called the party leadership and the Vilnius City Council where a conservative candidate election voting procedure is being held and invites them to arrange a night vote on the polls.
"Such a request came from the Utah Election Command but we think it is unnecessary." "I have no doubts with the people of my party, electoral commissions or approved electoral process." I asked my colleagues not to do such circuses, but they are here, "he said. the secretary-general of the Conservative Party, Aistė Gedvilienė.
"I personally called Agne Zalanskaité, who I know from Mr Guoga's representative (Antanas Guoga – MEP-DELFI) and asked that Mr Vygaudas Ušackas's electoral staff stay overnight. This request was based on fears that he feared that the election results falsify experiments, "said Povilas Poderskis, Director of the Vilnius Municipal Government on Saturday night.
On 3-4 November, the presidential elections of the TS-LKD party are taking place in the whole of Lithuania. This includes former Ambassador V. Ušackas, a member of the Conservative Party, and Ingrida Šimonytė, member of the Seimas TS-LKD Group.
In Vilnius, the vote took place between 10 am and 7 pm in the Vilnius City Hall building on the first floor conference room.
As the conservative Vilnius Congressman, Valdas Benkunskas, confirmed after leaving the municipal building after the observers were locked and locked in the rooms and ballot papers, many supporters of Ušacka remained in the foyer building next to security officers.
According to Mr P. Poderski, representative of the Vilnius City Council, after the call of A. Zalanskaitė, he estimates that "the celebration of democracy is in progress and the prohibitions can not be understood", so they gave oral permission to the outsiders.
"They were asked not to interfere with security personnel, but to observe public order," said Poderski.
Asked whether such a behavior by a candidate does not indicate that he does not trust the party or its representatives in organizing the elections, Sejm Gabriel Landsbergis, President of the TS-LKD Party, said "is disappointed that someone believes that something can falsify or influence the choices of progress or results ".
"In the past, if we look at the tension, there were many rivals, but it was unprecedented that in the past it was not reliable and even suspected of some unacceptable activity – before we heard this party – Landsbergis said.
"Everything in the Name of Democracy"
