The Prime Minister of Lithuania is the head of Sąjūdis, a multi-party coalition in favour of Lithuanian independence.

Historically, the title of Prime Minister was also used between 1918 and 1940. This was during the original Republic of Lithuania, which lasted from the collapse of the Russian Empire until the country's annexation by the Soviet Union.
