Health minister beats ouster attempt

HEALTH Minister Rudolf Zajac survived an opposition-initiated non-confidence vote in parliament on February 8.

A total of 68 MPs of the 134 present supported the motion against Zajac, short of the 76 votes required.

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, Hospodárske noviny wrote.
