After the first round of municipal council elections there was a large discussion who has won and how the results should be treated. We heard the traditional party funeral melodies, though counting the joint result of the election committees is as logical as counting the joint parties result, not to mention the origin of many of the most popular committees. The democratic deficit in a local self-government has also been widely commented, seeing that long-standing mayors have strengthened their positions not only because of the work done, but also because of the available administrative resources, which are likely to be a barrier for any change in the municipality, a press release from Ingrida Šimonytė‘s press office reads.
