EU budget commissioner Dalia Grybauskaite steps down


Update (18 May 2009): Dalia Grybauskaite has been elected president of Lithuania!


Some days ago I followed Jan's argumentation on by saying that Mr Barroso will postpone the EU budget review to October in order to be re-elected.

But maybe he has postponed this issue because his budget Commissioner Dalia Grybauskaite will leave the Commission to run for the presidential office in Lithuania?

Update (13 March): Nouvelle Europe has published a long article (French) on this matter.
