During a solemn parliament sitting, the new head of state put his hand on the Constitution and pledged to be faithful to the Republic of Lithuania and Constitution and to serve honestly and be equally just to everyone.

Economist Nauseda, 55, vowed to create a welfare state for everyone and reduce social exclusion during the presidential election in May when he received almost 66 percent of votes during the presidential runoff.

He replaced Dalia Grybauskaite who served as president two terms since 2009.
