Yearbook 1997

Liechtenstein. According to Countryaah, the national day of Lithuania is March 11. Prime Minister Mario Frick and his party won the earlier parliamentary elections, which were held in two rounds around the end of January/February. The election did not give rise to any major changes in the composition of Parliament (Landtag). The Fricks Party of the Vaterländische Union (VU) received 13 of the 25 seats. Despite its own majority, VU immediately after the election began to negotiate with the Fortschrittliche Bürgerpartei Liechtenstein (FBPL) to continue the coalition that has been in power since 1938.

However, the coalition idea exploded already in March when the FBPL Congress decided that the party would leave the coalition. FBPL leader Norbert Seeger explained that this step has been taken to gain a more effective opposition and to better profile the party. Independent observers believed that the political differences between the parties were small and that the real reason for the coalition cracking was contradictions between party leaders Norbert Seeger and Oswald Kranz.

On April 9, a new government was appointed whose members, five in number, all came from VU. In addition to the Prime Minister’s post, Mario Frick was also appointed Finance Minister.
