"93 years ago Lithuania proclaimed to its neighbors and to the whole world that we were restoring an independent state on the foundations of democracy. Lithuania made this resolute and fearless step after a century long occupation. Today we are free and counting the third decade of our reestablished independence. A generation that was born in freedom is now taking part in the election process," President Dalia Grybauskaitė said.

According to the President, there are many hard-working people in Lithuania and there is enough of determination, effort and ability to build the wellbeing of the country.
