The coalition will have 36 members, including the mayor.
"We have agreed on all things, most importantly, on agenda-related issues, and also on the committees and their chairmen and on all other positions," Vilnius Mayor-Elect Remigijus Šimašius, representing the Liberal Movement, told BNS on Thursday evening.

He said that he himself would propose a candidate for chief of municipal administration and that would be a "person from the business sphere".
