The four political groups hold 32 out of 51 seats at the council.

The deal sets out 18 priorities, starting with the development of kindergartens and implementation of a national stadium project and ending with support for national minorities' cultural centers and updating of the city's general plan.

"The political groups committed themselves to continuing, at a faster pace, the work started during this tenure and place a greater focus on the following commonly agreed priorities: education, urban growth, corporate governance and enhancing the city's competitiveness, and increased protection of the interests of Vilniusites," Šimašius said in a press release.

The Liberals announced in early October that they were ending their cooperation with the Homeland Union at the capital's council. The Lithuanian Freedom Union (Liberals) of Artūras Zuokas, a former mayor of Vilnius, also stays in the opposition.
