According to the survey by Vilmorus pollster, Matijošaitis is favored by 51.7 percent of respondents, up from 50.8 percent a month ago.

"Matijošaitis is second for the second time. He is favored by as many as 80 percent of respondents in Kaunas. This is a rare phenomenon. The positive ranking in Kaunas was 70 percent in May. He is indeed a star. Probably the image in Lithuania is that Kaunas is developing well on the economic and cultural front," Vilmorus CEO Vladas Gaidys told BNS.

Grybauskaite remains on top of the list of politicians, supported by nearly 63 percent of those polled, which is an increase from 60 percent in September.

The rating of Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis remains stable at 49.3 percent in October and 49.5 percent in September.

According to the poll, Parliamentary Speaker Viktoras Pranckietis ranks fourth with sharp increase in popularity poll from 41.4 percent in September to 47.7 percent in October.
