Lithuania's Constitution Court held a public hearing on Wednesday over the annulment of election results in Zarasai-Visaginas single-member constituency and is expected to announce its ruling on Friday.

Representatives of the Presidential Office who turned to the Court as well as representatives of the Central Electoral Commission which annulled the results attended the Wednesday hearing.

The Central Electoral Commission ruled on Saturday that Rimvydas Podolskis, a candidate of the Labour Party, bribed voters and thus grossly violated the Law on Elections to the Seimas.

President Dalia Grybauskaitė turned to the Constitutional Court on Tuesday after a request by the Order and Justice Party. The opposition party is contesting the election panel's decision to cancel the election results in Zarasai-Visaginas single-member constituency where Algimantas Dumbrava of the Order and Justice Party won a majority in the first round of voting, and Podolskis came in second. They both got into the runoff.
