On Wednesday the 9th of April the official list of presidential candidates were announced. Even though the list contained twelve names, only seven of them will become official candidates because the they could not secure the required number of votes.
Among other, the candidates include the incumbent President Dalia Grybauskaitė, Social Democrat MEP Zigmantas Balčytis, Labour Party candidate MP Artūras Paulauskas and Vilnius Mayor Artūras Zuokas.
The Lithuanian people will cast their votes on 11 May. If needed, a runoff will be combined with European Parliament elections on 25 May.
