The council decided on Thursday that the vice-mayor of the Mums Svarbu (We Care) movement will head the city until September 20.

Law-enforcement officials suspect Panevezys Mayor Rytis Mykolas Račkauskas of abuse of office and influence peddling. A court last week suspended him from office for three months.
