Parliament approves new central bank vice-governor

PARLIAMENT approved the nomination of current Deputy Finance Minister Vladimír Tvaroška, 34, as the new vice-governor of the Slovak Central Bank (NBS) on March 16.

81 of 85 MPs supported the nomination, TASR news agency wrote.

In a purely official act, Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič will appoint the new vice-governor to the post.

Tvaroška will replace current NBS vice-governor Elena Kohútiková, who reached the term limit allowed by law as a member of the bank's top board, where she was in charge of the national currency policy.
