Politics situation in Lithuania, war and peace

Lithuania is independent, democratic central Europe country. Our government consists of president, executive branch and legislative power.

The president is the first person in Lithuania; he can declare war, make a peace, block the legislation, disband the Seimas and et cetera. Now the president is Valdas Adamkus. He is elected the second time. He will be a president till 2009. He can be elected ant the third time, this let a Lithuanian constitution, but he iss already 79 years old. I think the Lithuanian peoples will not elect him in the following election. But his rating is very high. 67 percents of respondents trust of Valdas Adamkus. He is most trusted politician in Lithuania.

The executive branch is one of the governors of Lithuania. It consists of 13 ministers and one Prime minister. The Prime minister of Lithuania is Algirdas Brazauskas. He is the first president of independent Lithuanian. He has been elected in 1993. Then Algirdas Brazauskas has got a 60 percent of all votes. Now he is the most likable person of Lithuanian old people. But Algirdas Brazauskas is in scandal. It is thought, that he has helped to buy a hotel “Crown Plaza” to his present wife Kristina.

And th

he main part of government is the Lithuanian Seimas. It is the legislative power. The Seimas consists of 141 members. The majority of the Seimas consists of 4 party’s coalition, which is named as “Vaivorykste”. In English it is “Rainbow”. The coalition forms the Social Democrats, The Social Liberals, The Peasant Party and Labor Party. The last party has got the most of votes in previous elections. But this party has most scandals too. Some time ago, there has been a scandal. The leader of the Labor party, Viktoras Uspaskich couldn’t show his University diploma. He has left executive branch and the post minister of economy.

The most part of scandals in Lithuania is related with the Seimas and local governments. For example allmost half a year the mayor of Vilnius is in scandal with corruption in illegal selling of estate in Vilnius.

But it is only local problems. From time to time wars break out in different places of the world. Some of them break out from religion, territory and etc. Now war is going in Iraq, where the USA is trying to destroy a dictatorial authority and terrorism net. Some people say that wars reason is oil. The war is in Yugoslavia, Is
srael too. Those wars have begun for religion. Mostly wars break out against Islam and Christians. The biggest wars in human bean have been the World War I and the World War II. There have died a millions of people.
