The Lithuanian ruling coalition will survive until the parliamentary elections, despite recent disagreements over deputy culture minister, says Parliamentary Speaker Loreta Graužinienė of the Labour Party.
Following a conversation of Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius and Culture Minister Šarūnas Birutis, who was instructed to sack his deputy minister Vytautas Vigelis within a week, the Labour Party's leader Valentinas Mazuronis rushed off to the Government's Office. The politician is convinced that the deputy minister was appointed lawfully, although the PM insists that Vigelis should be fired.
Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius opposes the appointment of Vytautas Vigelis as Deputy Minister of Culture. The prime minister says the nomination was not coordinated with him and, therefore, is illegal.
