Next year’s budget is turning into a task for the new cabinet, which has yet to form and the new Seimas, which started work this week. The President has already presented the candidacy of Saulius Skvernelis for the post of PM, next week he will likely become the head of cabinet with little to no resistance and will announce his ministers. The new Seimas Speaker Viktoras Pranckietis discussed the coming term on the Savaitė show on LRT TV.
