Virginijus Sinkevičius
DELFI / Karolina Pansevič

Sinkevičius, 27, has been proposed by Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis. If endorsed by the president, the politician will become the youngest minister in Lithuania’s post-independence history.

The post of economy minister has been vacant after the Social Democratic Party left the ruling coalition. The former economy minister, Mindaugas Sinkevičius, was against the party’s position but obeyed the will and left the post.
