„This Wednesday I am calling a meeting of the council in which someone has to assume responsibility for such results,“ Mazuronis told the news agency ELTA on Monday.

He said the issue of his chairmanship of the party will be on the agenda.

According to the MP, negative information about the party in the public sphere prevented it from turning its fortunes around.

On Sunday, chairman of the Labour Party’s political group in the Lithuanian parliament Viktoras Fiodorovas announced his resignation. He said the move was prompted by the need of change in the party that has not happened.

Earlier, MPs Vigilijus Jukna and Ieva Kačinskaitė-Urbonienė withdrew from the Labour Party as well.

On 29 March, the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) reported that together with the Financial Crime Investigation Service (FNTT) they were conducting a pre-trial investigation into a suspected fraud involving a former assistant of a Lithuanian Member of the European Parliament.

After law enforcement raided the party’s headquarters, its founder and MEP Viktor Uspaskikh suspended his membership in the party. He did not participate in 2024 elections to the European Parliament.
