Vytautas Landsbergis on committees: local parish parties are creating mini-states
“I hope that Kaunas will not declare independence from Lithuania. But such a trend exists looking more broadly at what is happening in Lithuania. The entrenchment of certain groups, which could call themselves parties, committees, parishes or such. In reality, all those committees are small local parties making political deals, sharing power and opportunities, sometimes they are good, but sometimes – selfish,” professor Vytautas Landsbergis says. In his opinion, the entrenchment of local parties, which create mini-states, is dangerous.
