Valdas Adamkus (pronounced ( listen); born Voldemaras Adamkavičius on November 3, 1926) was President of Lithuania from 1998 to 2003 and again from 2004 to 2009.
In Lithuania, the President's tenure lasts for five years; Adamkus' first term in office began on February 26, 1998 and ended on February 28, 2003, following his defeat by Rolandas Paksas in the next presidential election. Paksas was later impeached and removed from office by a parliamentary vote on April 6, 2004. Soon afterwards, when a new election was announced, Adamkus again ran for president and was re-elected. Adamkus has one of the highest approval rates among politicians in Lithuania and is regarded as a moral authority in the state. He chose not to run for re-election during the Lithuanian presidential election in 2009 and was succeeded on 12 July 2009 by Dalia Grybauskaitė.
He is married to Alma Adamkienė, who is involved in charitable activities in Lithuania.
