Jasiulionis would replace Aistis Zabarauskas, who left the presidential team last week.

The president’s office has not yet confirmed this information.

Before taking up the duties, any candidates for the president’s chief advisers must, as a general principle, obtain an authorization to handle classified information and these procedures take some time to implement.

Jasiulionis, 50, is a professional actor who has performed in both theater and television series.

Recently, he has worked as a news anchor and a host of political talk shows on the online TV channel Laisves TV and Ziniu Radijas.

In 2009, Jasiulionis worked as a spokesman for then prime minister Andrius Kubilius.

BNS could not contact Jasiulionis thus far.

Zabarauskas’ resignation from the presidential team was announced last week. The president’s office then said that he would go back to work in the private sector. Two more chief advisers – Jonas Vytautas Zukas who led the National Security Group and Sonata Sulce who was in charge of the president’s Education, Science and Culture Group – announced their resignation simultaneously with Zabarauskas.
