The Lithuanian Cabinet has been overhauled in line with a coalition agreement signed by the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union, the Social Democratic Labor Party of Lithuania, the Order and Justice party and the EAPL-CFA in early July.

Earlier in the day, the Lithuanian parliament voted to give a renewed mandate to Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis' reshuffled Cabinet. The motion was passed in a vote of 75 to 27 with nine abstentions.
