New law[edit]

Some news from the seimas. If I well understand a new law proposal has been agreed. The text of the new law is here. Enlarged possibilities for double citizeship seems to be foreseen. Jmnil (talk) 12:36, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

It's been vetoed by President.--Lokyz (talk) 10:45, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
The text of the article reads: "The petitioners held that basing citizenship on ethnic origin or nationality of the person violated the equality of persons and was discriminatory. The use and meaning of the term "repatriated" was especially controversial. The Lithuanian Seimas (parliament) is expected to address this issue during 2007." Whatever the outcome of the parliament's deliberations (or even if the deliberations did not happen, it would be good to update this sentence (now that it's the middle of 2008). However, I am not knowledgeable enough to do so at this stage: can anyone do this? Ondewelle (talk) 13:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
