"We have received a decision by the board of the Liberal Movement, which in fact endorses the general negotiation progress, and that allowed us to agree on the second candidate for Viktorija Cmilyte-Nielsen to be nominated for speaker of the Seimas," Gabrielius Landsbergis, leader of the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats, told BNS on Wednesday night.

It has also been agreed that the Liberal Movement will get at least two ministerial positions and the Freedom Party will be allocated three, he said. Such an agreement was reached by the three parties on Tuesday.

According to Landsbergis, there's no agreement on the Seimas speaker's deputies yet.

The center-right coalition is also proposing Ingrida Simonyte, representing the LHU-LCD for prime minister, which is stated in the coalition agreement.

Simonyte told journalists after the negotiations that the quota distribution "is not a pharmacy and, for orientation purposes, the Liberal Movement would get at least two ministerial positions and the Freedom Party would get at least three," but the final distribution will be determined by the parties' agreements and proposed candidates.

"It's simple mathematics as at the end of the day agreements and proposed people will be key," Simonyte said.
