Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite on Tuesday signed a decree accepting the resignation of Algirdas Butkevicius from the post of prime minister. The decree came into effect immediately.
Lithuania held its second round of parliamentary elections on October 23. Of the eight parties present in the previous government, seven were able to hold their representatives in the new cabinet.
The elections to the 141-seat legislature were won by the Lithuanian Peasant and Greens Union, with almost 22.5 percent of the vote, or 54 seats. The Homeland Union, which was the largest opposition party in the previous government, came with 31 seats.
