New book "President" to be published in Lithuania
However, Bielinis' book is not a political biography dedicated to mark the upcoming two years anniversary since Grybauskaite assumed president's seat, informs LETA/ELTA, referring to Lietuvos zinios.
The book is rather a subjective analysis of the president's key policies, principles of governing and the representation of them to the society. Bielinis said he did not know Grybauskaite personally:
"In fact, I have not even met her in a corridor, however, this does not interest me at all: I have distanced myself from all personal, individual characteristics and biographical things which do not have any influence on her policies. As the author says, "the aim of the book is to show how a political leader acts and takes part in the national politics, therefore th e main source was the actions of the president herself, her speeches, actions, decisions, society and political arena's reaction to what she is doing".
