Asked whether the president checked her command of foreign languages, the candidate said: "We spoke about it as well." She added the conversation with the president was in Lithuanian.
Speaking to journalists after a 15-minute meeting, Baltraitienė said she was not told whether the president would appoint her to head the Ministry of Education and Science.
"I don't know, this didn't come up," she said.
In Baltraitienė's words, the new coalition is not planning revolutions in the education sector.
"Our program stipulates (cancellation of "student basket" system), but this would not be a revolution but a gradual revision. First of all, we have to take a close look. I cannot say today, I have to be approved first," the Labour Party's candidate said, adding her competences on education matters were sufficient.
"I believe I am familiar with education matters back from the time I worked as administrative director, head of the Economic Department and mayor at the Kėdainiai district municipality. I am very close to general education, pre-school and vocational education. For seven years, I've served as a member of parliament, I am also interested in education and I think the strategic thinking I possess as an economist, not just as an education worker, gives me the potential to work," the politician said.
Baltraitienė said the meeting also addressed Lithuania's upcoming presidency over the European Union (EU).
