"It is proposed that the Justice Ministry should draft amendments to prohibit consultants from third countries during the election campaign," Arnoldas Pikžirnis, an advisor to the prime minister, told reporters after the commission's meeting.

Legislative amendments will also be drafted to give members of Lithuania's Central Electoral Commission access to classified information, he said.
