"I expect we will discuss this at the board's meeting tomorrow," outgoing Social Democratic Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius said on Žinių Radijas on Thursday morning.

Julius Pagojus, who served as a deputy justice minister in the outgoing government, had been appointed justice minister earlier this week, but he stepped down on Wednesday amid criticism over last year's incident in which he was caught by the police drunk-driving.
