"She worked in a completely different job previously, we have to wait and see how she does there. The bar has been raised extremely high for her," the Seimas Speaker said in the Žinių Radijas radio show Pozicija.

Vilytė was appointed to lead the VPT on Monday and will take office on 22 December. Since 2010, she has been heading the Lithuanian Business Support Agency.

Former head of the VPT Žydrūnas Plytnikas was fired after the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania upheld the decision made in 2013 by the Chief Official Ethics Commission which found the director guilty of letting his private interests interfere with his job.
