Lithua­nia’s MEP Bal­cytis quits Brus­sels job

The Baltic Times - - SPOTLIGHT - TBT/BNS Staff

Lithua­nian MEP Zig­man­tas Bal­cytis has de­cided to give up his MEP man­date to pur­sue an in­ter­na­tional ca­reer. In his words, life has de­liv­ered a yet an­other un­ex­pected chal­lenge - an in­vi­ta­tion to join an in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion where Bal­cytis will have to spend part of my time in Europe and in the US. The field of op­er­a­tions is econ­omy of world coun­tries, fi­nances, fore­cast and sim­u­la­tion. Un­der the So­cial Demo­cratic Party’s list, Bal­cytis’ slot in the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment should be filled by Ged­im­i­nas Kirk­i­las, the in­cum­bent par­lia­men­tary vice-speaker, while the lat­ter should be re­placed by Bro­nius Bradauskas. Bal­cytis also an­nounced his plans to leave the race for chair­man of the Lithua­nian So­cial Demo­cratic Party.
