Lithuanians vote for parliament in 2nd round

Lithuanians vote for parliament in 2nd round

Voting stations have opened for the parliamentary election in the Baltic state of Lithuania, with a conservative party poised to gain the largest number of seats.
Sunday's ballot is the second round of the election, with 68 seats in the 141-member parliament to be determined.
The conservative Homeland Union won 20 percent of the popular vote two weeks ago and has the best chance to finish the election with the largest number of seats.
The conservatives have been in the opposition for nearly a decade and are hoping to use a possible comeback to form a center-right coalition that would tackle issues of energy security and the country's sluggish economy.
