‘…a fairly constant ratio between the Lithuanian and non-Lithuanian population (about four to one) was maintained through the sixties and seventies. There has been considerable expansion of the towns and cities of Lithuania, but in their ethnic composition, they are probably more Lithuanian than they were before the war, when there were sizeable Jewish and Polish communities (this is certainly the case with the capital, Vilnius, where Lithuanian speakers probably constituted one-fifth of the population on the eve of war and now make up over half of the 592,500 inhabitants).’ 

David Kirby, ‘The Baltic World 1772-1993’ 1995

OVERVIEW: LITHUANIA

Early election results suggested that Labour and the Social Democrats had finished first and second. The two parties’ leaders wasted no time in meeting with the third placed Social Justice Party to discuss a possible coalition. The finish between the two former opposition parties was close with early results showing the Labour party with 21 per cent, and the Social Democrats with 19 per cent. The defeated Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius' ‘Homeland Union’ slumped to an unimpressive 13 per cent. The defeat was seen as an electoral punishment for the savage cuts in pensions and public sector wages.
