Fedor is new defence minister

MARTIN Fedor, the former deputy defence minister, was yesterday named the new minister, the daily SME reported.

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič accepted the resignation of Juraj Liška, who decided to step down following the fatal crash of a military airplane in which 42 Slovak soldiers died.

The ministry is now seeking to appoint a new deputy defence minister. According to the Coalition Agreement, which cabinet parties concluded after the 2002 general elections, the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union has the right to nominate a person for this post.
