Four members of the Order and Justice (Sovereign Lithuania) Seimas group, Juozas Imbrasas, Ona Valiukevičiūtė, Vytautas Kamblevičius and Algimantas Dumbrava have declared on Tuesday their departure from the Seimas group. This means that the Order and Justice group in Seimas has fallen apart twice now in half a year. The cabinet has formally been left without a majority, however the hope is that its decisions will be backed by most members of the mixed Seimas group. The former Order and Justice group members intend to join a newly forming Seimas group.

With four members leaving, now the Order and Justice group only has three members of parliament remaining, while the required number is seven. This means that the group can no longer exist.
