Lithuanian lawmakers plan to work only one day a week during their fall session that starts in September, according to Deputy Speaker of the Seimas Virginija Baltraitienė.

"The board has already made the decision and when the Seimas session starts, the Seimas speaker will present it to the entire Seimas, so we will probably work one day per week until the Seimas election," she told the Žinių Radijas (News Radio) on Wednesday.

The Board of the Seimas believes plenary sittings should be held only on Tuesdays. So far they have been held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Meanwhile parliamentary committees and commissions have held sittings on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Baltraitienė said the Seimas had had difficulties in adopting more important legal acts and it would be harder to do that during the pre-election campaign.

The deputy speaker also expressed doubts over Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius' hopes that this Seimas would manage to adopt laws related to the pension reform. Such bills need thorough discussions and this Seimas will not have time for that, Baltraitienė said.

Pursuant to the Constitution, the Seimas fall session starts on 10 September.

The parliamentary election is scheduled for 14 October.
