Following the meeting, SDPL leader Gintautas Paluckas said early Seimas elections would be possible if Nauseda wanted that and the incumbent government was not able to function normally.

"If we see a floating government and we'll see the president's initiative regarding early elections, we will sit at the table and we'll able to talk to all other parties," Paluckas told journalists.

In his words, to hold early elections, the approval of the ruling parties and the opposition would be needed. Julius Sabatauskas, elder of the SDPL's political group in the Seimas, said the incumbent ruling parties "have no plans to do anything especial, just keep floating."

"Such a situation satisfies neither us nor, as we understood, the elected president," the politician said.

The Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union, the Social Democratic Labor Party of Lithuania and the Order and Justice party are now holding talks on a new ruling coalition and also expect the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania – Christian Families Alliance to join.

The ruling parties hope to agree on a coalition next week.
