Analysis


Although opinion polls and pundits claimed for large Social Democratic Party victory, but elections were won by the Homeland Union by around 2,000 votes.[3][4]

The Homeland Union won only in six municipalities (including Vilnius and Kaunas). The Social Democratic Party came at close second by the number of votes. The Liberal Movement came third, but it won in two municipalities only (Klaipėda and Neringa).[5] The Order and Justice mainly won in northwest of the country.
