ActivitiesEdit

Viktoras Pranckietis was elected as a Speaker.

Since 2018 the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union tried to obstruct a work of critical of them institutions (notably LRT and Constitutional Court of Lithuania).[4][5]

CompositionEdit

Parliamentary groupsEdit

After the elections, the parliamentary groups were formed in the Seimas, largely on the party lines: Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union (LVŽSF), Social Democratic Party of Lithuania (LSDPF), Liberal Movement (LSF), Order and Justice (FTT), Electoral Action of the Poles in Lithuania (LLRAF), Homeland Union - Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TSLKDF) and the Mixed Group of Members of the Seimas (MSNG).[6]

The term of the Seimas was noted for particularly significant shifts among parliamentary groups. Most notable examples were Social Democratic Party and Order and Justice parliamentary groups. The former had split into two separate parliamentary groups (and later, parties), while the latter (along with the party) completely disintegrated.

By the end of the term of the Seimas, the following parliamentary groups were active.
