Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis says the ruling majority voiced its full support to Narkevic.

"Full supports has been expressed, and the minister continues working," the prime minister told journalists after the council meeting on Tuesday.

President Gitanas Nauseda has on numerous times called for the dismissal of the transport minister after he came under criticism for the removal of board of Lietuvos Pastas (Lithuanian Post), the circumstances around living at the Seimas hotel and the allocation of funds for road paving.

Skvernelis also confirmed his plans to nominate his adviser and Vilnius councilor Savickas for economy and innovation minister.

"We have spoken about this candidate with the president as an option. (…) I can say what's been said already, it's Saviskas," the prime minister said, adding that his government plans to initiate a discussion by the end of this year on merging the Ministries of Energy and Economy and Innovation.
