If elections were held on the upcoming Sunday, 14.5 percent would vote for the SDPL, down from 15 percent in November.

Some 9.7 percent would vote for HU-LCD, down from 10.6 percent in November.

The opposition Democrats "For Lithuania" continue to rank third with 8.9 percent, up from 8.1 percent in November.

The opposition Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union would be supported by 7.4 percent (6.5 percent in November).

Next on the list is the Liberal Movement, part of the ruling coalition, which would get 5.4 percent of votes (5 percent in November).

“There are no particular changes, except for the Freedom and Justice party. The change is essential and it looks sensational to me,” Vilmorus head Vladas Gaidys told BNS.

The Freedom and Justice party saw its voter support dwindle to 2 percent in December, from 5.9 percent in November.

“There is probably just one reason for that. Remigijus Zemaitaitis, who is popular, was specified as the party’s chair last month and now he is replaced by Arturas Paulauskas, as an acting chair until April. That was probably the reason for the steep fall in support and the ensuing improvement in the rating of Saulius Skvernelis’ party,” Gaidys explained.

Some 13.6 percent of the polled said in December they would not vote at all (13.7 percent in November) while 28.5 percent did not know who they would vote for in a general election (24.6 percent in November).

The survey of 1,000 people was carried out on Dec 8-15.
