Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda tops the popularity rating in the country, according to the latest survey by Vilmorus for the Lietuvos Rytas daily, published on Saturday.

It shows 73.7 percent of those surveyed had a positive opinion about Nauseda in July, compared to 64.7 percent in June.

"The negative assessment stands at only 5.2 percent, which is a very good result. President Nausėda had a very similar rating as Valdas Adamkus had in 1998," Vladas Gaidys, head of Vilmorus, a public opinion and market research center, told BNS.

63.2 percent had a positive opinion about former President Dalia Grybauskaitė during her last days in the office.

"Her result is fairly stable," said Gaidys.

Kaunas Mayor Visvaldas Matijošaitis closes the top three with 54.5 percent. He is followed by Speaker of Seimas Viktoras Pranckietis (53.2 percent), Transport Minister Rokas Masiulis (49.1 percent), Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius (48.4 percent), Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis (42.4 percent), Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Simašius (34 percent), Remigijus Žemaitaitis, leader of the Order and Justice party (33.3 percent), and Economy and Innovation Minister Virginijus Sinkevičius (30.4 percent).

The survey of 1,021 people was carried out on July 5-13.
