June 13 is likely date for presidential vote in Lithuania

Lithuania's presidential election is likely to be held June 13, when the nation will also vote for representatives to the European parliament. The Lithuanian constitution provides that, in the absence of a president, the country be administered by the speaker of parliament, who must, within 10 days, set a date for the election of a president. That date, in turn, must fall no later than two months after the presidency has been vacated, as it now has been by the resignation of Rolandas Paksas. Arturas Paulauskas, the speaker of parliament, will now fill in.

On the first count (illegally granting citizenship to entrepreneur Yury Borisov) of the bill of impeachment against Paksas, the parliament voted 86 in favor, 17 opposed; on the second count (revealing government secrets), 86 voted in favor, with 18 against, and on the third count (pressuring a private business against the interests of the government), 89 deputies voted for and 14 against.
