Health minister survives non-confidence vote

HEALTH Minister Rudolf Zajac survived an opposition-initiated non-confidence vote in parliament yesterday.

A total of 68 MPs of the 134 present supported the motion against Zajac, short of the 76 votes required to recall cabinet ministers in parliament.

Apart from MPs for the ruling coalition, members for the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), which left the ruling coalition on February 6, also backed the minister, the Hospodrárske noviny daily wrote.
