Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs Neris Germanas, Rolandas Kriščiūnas and Andrius Krivas, have been reappointed on Friday.

The three will return to office on 21 July.

Earlier on Friday, the Ministry of Welfare and Labour also issued a statement, saying deputy ministers Laisvūnas Bartkevičius, Gintaras Klimavičius and Algirdas Šešelgis have been grated mandate.

Following the so-called vice-minister blacklist scandal, which broke out after the Special Investigations Service alleged it had information on shady dealings of nine deputy ministers, the government came under President Grybauskaitė's pressure to dismiss the suspected officials. The government then decided to dismiss all the deputy ministers in all ministries and have them form the teams anew.
