Nauseda vows to refresh his team, wants to keep ‘a few key people’

Lithuanian President-elect Gitanas Nauseda vows to refresh his team of aides for a new term, but says he wants to keep a few key people “at all costs”.

“I see a few key people that I would like to keep at all costs. They are important to me. I have had many opportunities to see their professionalism and dedication to their work,” Nauseda told journalists in Vilnius on Sunday. “I will certainly try to rebuild the team based on the key people, but I expect some changes.”

He did not say as to what extent his team would change, but added that five years is “a long time and after five years there is a need for change, including within the team”.

The latest figures from the Central Electoral Commission show that Nauseda won 75.55 percent of the vote in Sunday’s presidential run-off, and defeated Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte, nominated by the ruling conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats.

Nauseda will be sworn for a new five-year term in July.
