VILNIUS, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Next presidential election and election of European parliament members in Lithuania will be held in May 2014, say two draft resolutions submitted to the secretariat of the Seimas, the national parliament, by Speaker Vidas Gedvilas.
Presidential election will be held May 11, 2014 and election to the European parliament is to be scheduled for May 25.
This means that the voting for candidates to seats in the European Parliament may take place simultaneously with the second round of the presidential election if that round will be needed.
The head of state in Lithuania is elected by secret balloting of a period of five years. A candidate for the office of president should be forty years old as a minimum and a citizen of the Lithuanian Republic by birth. Also, he or she is expected to have lived in the country’s territory permanently for at least three years prior to the election.
None of the currently active politicians have so far made public their aspirations for presidency. The incumbent President, Dailia Grybauskaite, refrains from revealing her plans for the future, too.
