In view of the difficulties encountered in the formation of a new Ministry and the election of the President of the Lithuanian Republic, rumors have gained ground among the Christian Democratic Party, the most powerfull party in the country, that the recently elected Sejm will be dissolved soon and fresh elections held.
The minority nationalities have taken up the rumor and are discussing it in earnest. In the event of the ruling interpretation of paragraph 76 of the Electoral Law remaining in force, the minority nationalities in Lithuania will form a bloc on the lines of the minority nationalities bloc at the last election in Poland. In this way the minorities will be sure of obtaining more than the minimum number of seats to entitle them to proportional representation under the present ruling, and will prevent their present under-representation, on account of which they are boycotting the sittings of the Sejm.
