HistoryEdit

Algirdas Brazauskas, the leader of the Social Democratic Party of Lithuania, was appointed the Prime Minister by President Valdas Adamkus on 4 July 2001, after the resignation of the previous government of Rolandas Paksas. The 12th cabinet received its mandate and started its work on 12 July 2001, after the Seimas gave assent to its program.[8]
