Lithuania's Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius says he will not give in to the pressure of MEP Valdemar Tomaševski, the leader of the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania (LLRA), over the reappointment of the former Deputy Minister of Energy Renata Cytacka.
The ministerial teams will most likely not include Deputy Minister of the Interior Algimantas Juocevičius, Deputy Minister of Environment Almantas Petkus and Deputy Minister of Agriculture Živilė Pinskuvienė, who were included in the so-called blacklist compiled by the Special Investigation Service (STT). On Monday this was confirmed by the Ministries in question.
As the government has been reappointed following President Dalia Grybauskaitė's inauguration for the second term, deputy head at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Welfare return to their posts.
