MRU Assoc. Prof. Dumbliauskas Comments on Election of New Mayor - Artūras Zuokas in Vilnius

penki15min April 20th, the daily newspaper, "15min" published commentary by MRU Assoc. Prof. Vytautas Dumbliauskas on the election of Vilnius' new mayor, Artūras Zuokas. Dumbliauskas says although Zuokas is a charismatic politician, voters will not be happy with his election because it was on his watch that almost all municipal enterprises, which oversee high-rise buildings in the city, were privatized. In addition, Dumbliauskas says Zuokas is aligned with one business group, which everyone calls "Rubikonas." Dumbliauskas is an Assoc. Prof. in MRU's Dept. of Political Sciences.
