Kirkilas: Discussions on the Law on National Minorities last too long

“I hope that the Law on National Minorities will be adopted this time,” said Gediminas Kirkilas, the vice chairman of the Sejm. Today, once again, the law will be discussed by the Sejm.

The guest of our Political Salon, Gediminas Kirkilas, added that there are all the chances that the topic of the Law on National Minorities would be finally completed later this week.

“Discussions on this topic last too long. The society is divided, instead of being united in such significant issues for all citizens,” believes the vice chairman of the Sejm.
