Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Political personalities frequently create "own" parties to advance to Seimas. But most of them fail: look at Zuokas now, former conservative prime minister Vagnorius, etc.

On the other hand, the Liberal Movement, the social-democrats and the conservatives are clearly more centered around ideology than leaders.

If Uspaskich becomes a prime minister, he and Darbo Partija should be considered as separate entities for a while. Darbo Partija has a number of former leftish hopes, such as the social-liberal almost president Paulauskas.
