Approached by BNS Lithuania, Nauseda's spokesman Aistis Zabarauskas refused to comment on the future team, saying that presidential advisers would be named before the president's inaugurations next week.

Soviene has been working for the Competition Council since 2007 and her second terms set to expire in September. She's a deputy chair since 2013. Until then she worked as a lawyer at the Competition Council and a private company.
