Lithuania votes

Lithuanians went to the polls today in the first round of parliamentary elections - and have voted resoundingly against their neoLiberal, pro-austerity government which had plunged them into a Greek-style austerity-induced recession. But there's a catch: Lithuania uses Supplementary Member, with the party and constituency votes held on different days. So, their unfair electoral system could still produce a perverse result due to the electorate vote.

The second round of voting will be held on October 28.
