Prior to the Seimas elections Stasys Jakeliūnas was viewed as the most likely candidate for the post of Minister of Finance. Surprisingly, however, he replaced the already confirmed Seimas Budget and Finance Committee chairman, while the PM chose Vilius Šapoka as a candidate for the post of Minister of Finance. According to Jakeliūnas this occured due to his stance on pension funds and pressure on financial institutions.
