Eugenijus Gentvilas, chairman of the Lithuanian Liberal Movement, has called on Remigijus Šimašius to step down as vice-chairman of the party after the mayor of Vilnius announced his decision to run for re-election as a public election committee's candidate, the daily Lietuvos Rytas reported on Tuesday.

Gentvilas believes that MP Aušrinė Armonaitė should also resign as the Liberal Movement's chairwoman.

"I've nothing against them personally, but I have to react, because they deliberately violated the party's statute and distanced themselves from it. I don't think they can be my deputies", he told the paper.

Šimašius on Tuesday announced his decision to establish a public election committee for next year's mayoral election.
