V. Sinkevičius is set to face former Vilnius city Mayor Artūras Zuokas, who announced his bid in early December and incumbent Mayor Remigijus Šimašius.

Delfi reminds that the LVŽS has released a list of the party's candidates confirmed to run for mayor in various municipalities. Of the 60 municipalities, the party has candidates for 49 city and region mayors.

The party chose to not have a candidate in Kaunas city, instead supporting incumbent Mayor Visvaldas Matijošaitis' bid for re-election.

Former Minister of Agriculture, MP Bronius Markauskas is to run for Klaipėda region mayor for the party.

Non-partisan actor Aurimas Žvinys, who played the protagonist of Naisių Vasara, Pijus, a character often described as being based on LVŽS chairman Ramūnas Karbauskis, is a surprise candidate to become Šiauliai mayor for the party.
