Eighteen political parties and public election committees that want to stand for election to the European Parliament have submitted voter signatures, the Central Electoral Commission said on Thursday.

“Everyone has managed to collect [the required number of signatures],” the commission's deputy chair Svetlana Misevičienė told BNS Lithuania.

She added that the commission now had ten days to check the signatures.

A party or an election committee had show support of at least 10,000 voters to be able to run in the EP election on May 26.
