During the annual address read by President Dalia Grybauskaitė in the Seimas, Ramūnas Karbauskis, the leader of the ruling “Farmers” did not hear any criticism toward himself. According to him, D. Grybauskaitė spoke much about herself during her final annual address.

On the contrary, the chairman of the Social Democratic Labour Party Gediminas Kirkilas heard criticism toward the majority but found D. Grybauskaitė‘s address lacking in self-reflection. Seimas Speaker Viktoras Pranckietis, who is clashing with R. Karbauskis, admitted that the criticism toward the majority is “not without basis.”
