The score of Mr Paksas’ party is falling.

The first position is still belonging to the Labour Party (19,87%), the second one— to social-democrats (18,44%) and the third one to conservatists (15,02%)

For now, the fourth place is belonging to the Liberal Movement (8,55%), “The Way of Courage” is on the fifth position (7,94%) and the results of Rolandas Paksas’ “Order and Justice” are falling down. Currently they have 7,33% of votes.

AWLP’s result is 5,81% better. With the present arrangement, the Labour Party will have 17 MPs in the Seym, social-democrats—16, conservatists—12, liberals and “The Way of Courage”—7 MPs each, “The order and Justice”—6 and AWLP—5.
