The constituent assembly of the Democratic Labor and Unity Party took place in Vilnius on Saturday, electing presidential widow Kristina Brazauskienė as leader of the new political organization.

In her words, the assembly was attended by 98 individuals, authorized representatives of about 1,300 people. According to Lithuanian laws, a party can be founded by at least 1,000 citizens.

"We approved the bylaws, the program and picked the leadership – council, deputies, committees. We did everything in a way that it is required by the Justice Ministry. I was elected chairperson," Brazauskienė told BNS.

The party said it would submit relevant documentation to the Justice Ministry within two weeks.

Last August, Brazauskiene was elected to head the Lithuanian Freedom Union but left the party in November and announced plans to found a new movement.

She said she had failed to agree on fundamental values, objectives and the party's name with the Freedom Union's leader Vytautas Šustauskas. In her words, she wanted the restructured party to focus on protection of human rights, while Šustauskas allegedly demanded that the party should be named the Union of Fighters.

Brazauskienė is the widow of Lithuania's first post-independence president Algirdas Mykolas Brazauskas who passed away in 2010.
