Beňová changes her mind again

MONIKA BEŇOVÁ, who serves as deputy chairwoman of the opposition Smer party, had announced her intention to give up her number two position on the party's candidate list in favor of serving as foreign minister, should Smer perform well in parliamentary elections.

However, she has now decided to give up that ambition.

Beňová explained the about-face by saying that she did not want to aspire for the government post if it meant giving up her position on the list.

According to SME daily, however, tension between Smer chairman Robert Fico, Beňová and her fiancé, Fedor Flašík, may have been the real reason behind the decision.

Beňová, however, has insiste there is "absolutely not connection."
