Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the run.off has worked in favour of the social democrats and even more the conservatives and disadvantaged labour.

But the run-off gave The Homeland Union exactly the number of additional seats in the prediction quoted by dasmonde (9 likely + half of 22 toss-up = 20), while the Social Democrats could statistically count on 15.5 but got 22. Labour didn't lose that much: 11 instead of 14.

I should have made clear that I was looking at the percentages and the seats and their relationship.

On the predictions only the social democratic result was surprising, that is true.


  1. Darbo Partija        19.82%
  2. Social Democrats    18.37%   
  3. The Homeland Union   15.08%   


  1. Social Democrats      38
  2. The Homeland Union    33
  3. Darbo Partija     29
