Serious anti-democratic tendencies as a result of the Corona policy of discrimination against unvaccinated people are now also having an impact in the Baltic States: Last Friday, the Lithuanian parliament decided, MPs who refuse the Covid-19 vaccination, excluded from voting and participation in debates in the future. 62 out of 100 MPs approved the regulation – a classic example of majority tyranny.
The regulation came into force on November 15 and is initially intended to apply until the middle of next year. In Lithuania, the free conscientious decision of the MPs is played off against their role as representatives of the will of the people, with the result that parts of the population no longer experience democratic representation.
According to the Lithuanian state television, nine MPs have so far refused to be vaccinated. Even their diet payments are now to be suspended until they agree to be vaccinated. This means that the compulsory vaccination is already massively interfering with the fundamental rights of freely elected MPs.
The formal reason for this constitutionally highly controversial rampage of the collective vaccination lobby is the low enthusiasm for vaccinations in Lithuania. The country has one of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe. MEP Janis Rancans, one of the driving forces behind the Adoption of the parliamentary decision, said the action was necessary to increase public confidence in the government’s ability to control Covid infections.
