Parliamentarian Rimantas Dagys and Pro Patria chief Vytautas Sinica, who are creating a party based on conservative and Christian values, are receiving support from the side.

Rimantas Jonas Dagys left the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TS-LKD) after disagreements and declared at the end of summer that the prominence of liberal worldviews in Lithuanian politics are leading the country to a dead end. He assured that due to this, a new political power is spontaneously emerging “from the bottom up.”
