Lithuanian Results

VILNIUS, Lithuania — A left-wing group led by Lithuania’s ex-Communist Party boss Algirdas Brazauskas fell short of the support needed to form a government in the weekend’s national elections.

The Social Democrats became the biggest bloc in parliament, but its failure to win outright means parties had to begin work Monday on a viable coalition agreement. A new government could even exclude Brazauskas’ party.

The Social Democrats won 31 percent of the proportional vote with ballots from all 2,027 polling stations counted. That plus several directly elected mandates gave them 49 seats in the 141-seat Seimas.
