Even though the Constituent Assembly of Lithuania was elected (April 14-15, 1920) primarily to adopt the supreme law of the land and put a solid governmental structure into operation, it did not limit itself to this task. It plunged into the consideration, adoption and execution of many important laws, among them that of Land Reform.
The Constituent Assembly of Lithuania was the first parliament of the independent state of Lithuania to be elected in a direct, democratic, general, secret election. The Assembly assumed its duties on 15 May 1920 and was disbanded in October 1922.
