Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In total, there are over 20 political parties participating. Probably only few of them will get into Seimas.

Do the local Greens stand any chance?

The Peasants and Green Union may have a chance. They polled 2-3% in August. The leader is Ramunas Karbauskis. He is a successful land entrepreneur, was in Seimas for the 1996-2000 and 2000-2004 terms, even was a deputy of Seimas chairman for a few months. The nuclear plant issue may help them.

They did not make it. Karbauskis said that they were too active in the cities, calling for a "no" vote in the referendum :-) I guess many people did not notice that this party exist.

They have 2 candidates in the second round. In one constituency, their representative is No 3 just 32 votes behind the leader, after a suspect delay in the last district.
