Although the drama of Garliava has divided Lithuania, it will probably have no major impact on the citizens’ voting decisions in the upcoming elections to the Seimas, alfa.lt writes on 9 July referring to delfi.lt. A survey carried out in June has showed that 62% of the voters are not going to cast their vote according to the attitudes the parties have adopted towards the situation in Garliava. According to political scientist Algis Krupavičius, it shows that the society has maintained common sense. He also predicts a gloomy future for the Road of Courage party led by ex-judge Neringa Venckienė.
The respondents were asked if the attitude the political parties have adopted towards Laimutė Stankūnaitė and the daughter of Drąsius Kedys will influence their voting choice in the upcoming elections to the Seimas. 15.1 percent have stated that they would support the side of ex-judge Neringa Venckienė. 3.8 percent said that they would support the parties that had spoken for the enforcement of the court decision and 12.1 percent are going to vote for the ones that have not interfered in the events in Garliava.
