Lithuanian President Nausėda riding high after one month in office

President Gitanas Nausėda has been inaugurated one month ago and surveys show voters are happy with his performance.

According to a poll by Baltijos Tyrimai released last week, Nausėda is now the most popular politician in the country with an approval rating of 85 percent and only 9 percent expressing a negative opinion about the president.

The president’s approval rating grew 7 points since June.

Nausėda is ahead of former presidents Dalia Grybauskaitė (64 percent) and Valdas Adamkus (83 percent) as well as Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis (42 percent).

Over the first month in office, Nausėda paid visits to Poland and Latvia. He has vetoed four law amendments passed in parliament.

This Wednesday, the Lithuanian president is going to Germany for meetings with Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and other officials.

Nausėda’s visit to Estonia is planned for next week.
