According to “Vilniaus Diena”, within the next few years Lithunania is expected to create a new local government unit – the Pabradė district. It will be the 61st local government in Lithuania.

On Tuesday, Parliament adopted amendments to the Law on the territorial administrative units of the Republic of Lithuania and their boundaries, reducing the minimum number of residents from 10.000 to 7.000.

A population survey was carried out in Pabradė and other statutory requirements were fulfilled. The establishment of a new local government unit should be approved by the Svintsyan district, to which Pabradė belongs now.

According to “Vilniaus Diena”, the Pabradė district is all that came out of the promised local government reform.

Talmont: The initiative came from the citizens

Vice-Chairman of the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania and the deputy of the Lithuanian Parliament, Leonard Talmont, in an interview for PL DELFI assessed positively the establishment of a new local government unit. “The initiative came from the citizens. This is a normal occurrence, if people want to form a new local government, their initiative should be supported. As far as I know, 30 or 40 years ago Pabradė was a separate territorial unit.”

A large percentage of residents in Pabradė are Polish, so the Electoral Action has a good chance to govern or co-rule in this region. “There is no official position of the EAPL. I can only share my personal opinion. I think that the EAPL will have strong positions during the electoral campaign.” – said Leonard Talmont.
