"I would like to mention here that issues related to economic stability, the state's responsible financial policy and its continuity should get a lot of attention," Lingė told the Žinių Radijas (News Radio) on Tuesday.
In his words, the president has underlined earlier that strategic issues lack political continuity in Lithuania.
"It's important to learn the new coalition's position on long-term strategic issues. As you know, the president mentioned that in her state of the nation address. Even those statements that we have projects outstripping political cycles (…), and Lithuania has not implemented many of them, show that we have a weak tradition of work continuity. Continuity should remain one of the focuses of the future government," the presidential adviser said.
According to Lingė, the outgoing government hasn't had enough time to accomplish some planned work in the spheres of social care, healthcare, anti-corruption, so they should become a priority for the new government. Lingė also mentioned the upcoming Lithuanian EU Presidency as an important challenge for the new government.
