Agila Barzdiene will take over from Budryte as the chancellor, and Raminta Stanaityte-Cesniuliene, spokeswoman for former Finance Minister Vilius Sapoka, will replace Ridas Jasiulionis as head of the president's communication group.

Ieva Elenbergiene is also resigning from the president's communication group "to pursue a career in another professional field". Liutauras Galinis, another advisor, is leaving the president's office "for personal reasons".

Stanaityte-Cesnuliene will take over as the president's chief communication advisor on March 15.

Elena Mickeviciene joined the president's economic and social policy team on Thursday, and Simona Vilkelyte will become a member of his legal team, on March 8.
