For their part, the country's citizens continue to have the most favourable opinions of the country's leader, Valdas Adamkus (81%), and the current leader, Gitanas Nausėda (73%).

In a poll conducted by Elta on 10–21 April, respondents were asked to say which Lithuanian public figures they trust the most.

The next in the ranking table are Dalia Grybauskaitė, who has led Lithuania for two terms (60%), former Minister of National Defence Arvydas Anušauskas (59%), EU Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius (52%) and public figure Andrius Tapinas (52%).

Saulius Skvernelis, chairman of the Democratic Union In the Name of Lithuania, was among the top ten most trusted politicians, with a five-percentage point increase in trust. At the same time, parliamentarian Remigijus Žemaitaitis, who is running for president, received a favourable opinion from 45% of respondents, and Ramūnas Karbauskis, supported by 43% of respondents.

Public confidence in Minister of National Defence Laurynas Kasčiūnas (38%) and Viktorija Čmilyte-Nielsen (37%), Speaker of the Seimas and the Liberal Movement, grew by six percentage points each during the month.

The assessment of Jonas Pinskas, Chairman of the Party of Regions of Lithuania (40%), also improved by four percentage points during this period. Other politicians and public figures were unchanged in the last month.

The most unfavourable evaluations of politicians include Šimonytė, Landsbergis and Armonaitė

Compared to the survey conducted a month earlier, the April polls showed a three-percentage point increase in the assessment of Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė, the Chairwoman of the Freedom Party Aušrinė Armonaitė and the Chair of the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats Gabrielius Landsbergis.

However, they remain among the most unfavourably rated politicians. According to the survey, there was a lack of trust in A. 72% of respondents expressed their dislike of Armonaitė. Equally, 74% of respondents indicated they did not trust Šimonytė and Landsbergis.

At the same time, Landsbergis, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, is at the bottom of the table, with over 77% of Lithuanians having an unfavourable opinion of him.

The poll took place from 10 to 21 April. It involved personal interviews with 1020 Lithuanians and was conducted at 109 sampling points. The people surveyed reflect the opinion of the Lithuanian population aged 18 and over. The margin of error of the survey results is up to 3.1%.
