To be or not to be - that is the question for the emerging democracy in Lithuania now! The people of Lithuania made its choice during the recent parliamentary elections but our madam-president is now making this choice doubtful in fact! Fancy she isn't happy with the results! She would like just to kick the Labour Party out of the list of the winners. There are some evidently false allegations against the leader of the party and lots of intrigues and other bad smelling stuff around it. Grybauskaite obsessed with her own ambitions and passions is seen as huge challenge now undermining our belief into democracy now! And those supportive of her line are no better than she actually. That's been an especially vital moment for Algirdas Butkjavichjus now. I guess he may totally ruin his political future if he is set to follow the president's lead, if he betrays the democratic choice of his people. He may well fail his test for democracy actually. I strongly doubt that in this case he'll ever have a chance for presidency playing the subordinate role of the conservatives' puppet instead!
