Andriukaitis speculated that the move might have been coordinated with Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius although there could be millions of options or conspiracy theories.

As reported, the minister of agriculture resigned on Wednesday due to family reasons. After the move the Labour Party presidium has chosen six candidates to replace Jukna.
