Wednesday, August 6, 2014
According to Lithuania's Parliament Speaker, chair of the Labour Party Loreta Graužinienė, the Labour Party has over 10 candidates to propose for the office of the deputy minister of energy, while Minister of Agriculture Virginija Baltraitienė has submitted three nominations of possible deputies.
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 new Minister of Agriculture Virginija Baltraitienė intends to present the Labour Party, which has delegated her, with her deputies during the meeting of the presidium to take place on 30 July. The minister admits it is not easy to find people who have experience to make decisions and skills in particular fields and who would not belong to one business group.
