Former presidential candidate and former Minister of Finance Ingrida Šimonytė admitted in the 15min studio that she has yet to decide if she will run in next year’s Seimas elections, where the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats are offering her the leading position on their electoral roll and the office of prime minister if they are victorious.
