2000 Lithuanian parliamentary election

Parliamentary elections were held in Lithuania on 8 October 2000. All 141 seats in the Seimas were up for election, 71 of them in single-seat constituencies based on first-past-the-post voting. Altogether, around 700 candidates competed in the single-seat constituencies, while over 1,100 candidates were included in the electoral lists for the nationwide constituency; the Social Democratic coalition of former President Algirdas Brazauskas received the largest share of the popular vote in the nationwide constituency and won the most seats in the Seimas, but short of the 71 seats needed for the majority. New Union, led by Artūras Paulauskas, came second in the nationwide constituency, winning 29 seats in the parliament; the centre-right Liberal Union, led by the Mayor of Vilnius and former Prime Minister Rolandas Paksas, became as the largest single party in the parliament, with 34 seats and 17.25 per cent of the vote in the nationwide constituency. The Homeland Union, which had led the government for the previous four years, performed poorly in the elections, receiving only 8.62 per cent of the vote and winning eight seats, down from more than 30% of the vote and 70 seats in the previous elections.

Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius and many other prominent ministers were beaten in their constituencies. In the electoral campaign dominated by economic issues, the party was punished by voters for the economic recession and high unemployment, as well as its austerity policy; the Social Democratic coalition, on the other hand, had promised the end to austerity, including lower taxes and higher social spending. A Two Modern Christian-Democratic Union candidates were elected in the proportional vote, having run on the lists of the New Union and the Liberal Union of Lithuania; the Liberal Union, the New Union, the Centre Union and the Modern Christian Democrats formed a coalition after the election, with Rolandas Paksas appointed as the new Prime Minister and Artūras Paulauskas elected as the Speaker of the Seimas. The coalition was not long-lasting and collapsed in June 2001 amid disagreements over privatisation and other reforms; the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Lithuania

Iowa Highway 175

Iowa Highway 175 is a main east–west route in the northern portion of the state. The highway has a length of 221 miles. Iowa Highway 175 enters the state by a Missouri River crossing between Decatur and Onawa; the highway continues westward as Nebraska Highway 51. Iowa 175's eastern terminus is at a T intersection with U. S. Route 63 in southwestern Black Hawk County. Despite Iowa 175's length, it only passes through small communities; the largest city on the route is Onawa, whose 2000 population was 3,091. Iowa Highway 175 begins at the eastern end of the Burt County Missouri River Bridge west of Onawa. At Onawa, it intersects Interstate 29. At Turin, it meets Iowa Highway 37 and turns northeast to follow an alignment which lies next to the Maple River, it meets Iowa Highway 141 in Mapleton. At Mapleton, Iowa 175 overlaps Iowa Highway 141 through town; this is a wrong-way concurrency, with eastbound Iowa 175 and westbound Iowa 141 routed on one side of the road, vice versa. It continues northeast from Mapleton through Danbury and Battle Creek and meets U.

S. Highway 59 west of Ida Grove. After passing through Ida Grove together with U. S. 59, they separate east of Ida Grove. Iowa 175 passes east through Arthur and at Odebolt, meets Iowa Highway 39. Further east, Iowa 175 meets U. S. Highway 71. Iowa 175 and U. S. 71 run east south east again concurrently through Lake View and Ulmer before separating at Auburn. Iowa 175 leaves Auburn going east passes through Lake City. After Lake City, Iowa 175 meets Iowa Highway 4; the two highways run concurrently through Lohrville before separating. Iowa 175 passes through Farnhamville and Gowrie and intersects Iowa Highway 144 before intersecting U. S. Highway 169 at Harcourt, they continue east together before separating before Dayton. After passing through Stratford, Iowa 175 meets Iowa Highway 17 at Stanhope, it leaves Stanhope going east and meets U. S. Highway 69 south of Jewell, they run together going north into Jewell before Iowa 175 turns east. After passing through Ellsworth, Iowa 175 intersects Interstate 35.

Iowa 175 goes east through Eldora and meets Iowa Highway 14 west of Grundy Center. Iowa 175 continues east with Iowa 14 before separating in Grundy Center, it turns southeasterly while passing through Morrison and Reinbeck turns east and ends at U. S. Highway 63 south of Hudson. Iowa Highway 175 was designated in 1930 as a short spur from U. S. Route 65 to Hubbard but extended west to Stratford by 1937. Iowa 175 extended west to Auburn in October 1940, replacing Iowa 91, a spur route from Dayton to US 169, Iowa 47, a spur route from US 169 to Farnhamville, Iowa 287, a spur route from Farnhamville to Iowa 17, Iowa 188, which went from Iowa 17 to Auburn.

Harold Davies, Baron Davies of Leek

Harold Davies, Baron Davies of Leek, PC was a British Labour Party politician. He was elected at the 1945 general election as Member of Parliament for Leek in Staffordshire, held the seat until his defeat at the 1970 general election by the Conservative candidate David Knox. Davies was subsequently given a life peerage in August 1970, as Baron Davies of Leek, of Leek in the County of Staffordshire. Davies was elected in 1945 for his large north Staffordshire seat that included a northern part of the Newcastle-under-Lyme-Stoke-on-Trent conurbation employed in the uncompetitive basic clothes textiles manufacturing but in the towns themselves, as today having major employment in the high quality, niche firms comprising the Staffordshire Potteries. Amid all the change towards advanced machinery and engineering in the area, he managed to retain the seat during the Third Churchill ministry and its two conservative following ministries led by Eden and Macmillan, he was always associated with the left of the party and was involved with the "Keep Left" and Bevanites.

He was an assiduous local MP but his left wing views led to him being overlooked for Ministerial office during the Attlee governments. He was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions from 1964 to 1966, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Social Security until 1967. Afterwards, he became Parliamentary Private Secretary to Prime Minister Harold Wilson between 1967 and 1970, he was made a Privy Councillor in 1969. Appointed to junior office by Harold Wilson, Davies made headlines when Wilson despatched him on a "secret" mission to Hanoi; this was an attempt to broker talks between the North Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh and the Americans and their allies. Wilson's policy of support for the US was unpopular, poorly supported within the Labour Party, but his stated commitment to the "special relationship" with the US, the need for US economic support, meant that he continued to lend his government's support to the US policy of military involvement in Vietnam. Davies, left wing and anti-militaristic, lent an air of conviction to putting out peace feelers.

But the mission went badly, with its secrecy blown. The Americans were furious, UK diplomats embarrassed and angry and Ho Chi Minh refused to met Davies, made to look foolish; when in the Commons, Davies led the 40-strong group of members.
