Tėvynės Sąjunga-Lietuvos Krikščionys Demokratai

27.10.2014

After the 2000 Parliamentary election the Homeland Union faced an existential crisis. In order to reignite itself it started to merge with various right political groups. The latest and biggest merger took place in 2008 with the Christian Democrats. However, this came at the expense of party coherence. The conservatives are split into two camps – conservatives and Christian Democrats – which disagree on all major policy issues.
