"Lithuania's prime minister Saulius Skvernelis leads now, after having changed some ministers, the EU's only completely male government."
"– This is outrageous. Fourteen male ministers is not a coincidence, " says the liberal opposition leader Viktorija Cmilyte-Nielsen."
"She dismisses that it would be offset by that president Dalia Grybauskaite is a woman."
"– Lithuania has many highly professional women, but that none of them were elected to the minister is evidence of a democratic deficit, says Virginija Langbakk, director of the institute for gender equality EIGE in the capital city of Vilnius."
"Skvernelis spokesman says that sex is not recorded in the executive choice."
"– the Prime minister sees to the professionalism and not sex when he choose the candidates, " says the spokesman points out that many women are secretary of state and have other high positions."
