Agriculture Minister resigns


Minister of Agriculture, Vigilijus Jukna, wrote yesterday to Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius tendering his resignation.

The letter suggests that the Minister has resigned for family reasons, although last week his Ministry was criticised by President Dalia Grybauskaitė for lack of transparency. The Prime Minister is reported as having accepted the resignation. Vigilijus Jukna is a member of the Labour Party (DP).
