Lithuania, Ms Grybauskaite president for another term.

26 May 2014

Dalia Grybauskaite was re-elected president of Lithuania in a runoff. She won 58% of the votes with her Social Democrat rival Zigmantas Balcytis trailing on 42%. Early results showed about 43.7 percent of the country’s 2.5 million registered voters went to the polls. Lithuanians also voted to fill 11 seats in the European Parliament.
Ms Grybauskaite thanked her supporters for granting her a second term.

“No president has been elected twice in a row in Lithuania. It will be a historic victory for all of you,” she said.
She is an economist who served as Lithuania’s finance minister and EU budget commissioner before becoming her country’s first female president in 2009.
