Some 18.3 percent of those polled by Spinter Tyrimai on May 22 to 29 said they did not know whom they would vote for, up from 10.2 percent who said so in April.

The top three names on the list of potential candidates for Lithuania's presidency remains unchanged.

Further down the list are former diplomat Vygaudas Ušackas with 6.5 percent, conservative MP Ingrida Šimonytė with 6 percent, the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union's chairman Ramųnas Karbauskis with 4 percent, and conservative MP Žygimantas Pavilionis with 3 percent.
