"The official election results must first be approved by the Central Electoral Commission, (...) then appeals against the commission's decisions can be filed at the request of the Seimas or the country's president to the Constitutional Court in case of any doubts. This is the situation we had after the first round of elections. We cannot rule out this scenario after the run-off either, after approval of the official election results," Lingė said in an interview to Žinių Radijas news radio on Tuesday.
The Central Electoral Commission should approve the results on Sunday, 4 November.
"The president will definitely look into motives and argumentation behind the complaints, the questioned matters and, if the commission's decisions are believed to feature some discrepancies or doubts, the option of turning to the Constitutional Court cannot be ruled out," he said.
After the first round of elections, the president turned to the Constitutional Court after a request by the Order and Justice Party. The opposition party contested the election panel's decision to cancel 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 Rimvydas Podolskis, a candidate of the Labor Party who, the Central Electoral Commission says, committed gross violations of the election law, came in second.
