According to a survey conducted by Eurobarometer, 19 percent of Lithuanians responded positively to a question whether they have recently heard about Šemeta in the media. Nine EU commissioners are less known in their home countries than Šemeta.
The best-known commissioner is Finland’s Olli Rehn, responsible for economics. 45 percent of Finns said they had seen or heard Rehn in the media.
The survey results were announced in the Financial Times' Brussels Blog.
