New job tender for SND director underway

CULTURE Minister Rudolf Chmel has halted a job tender for the post of director of the Slovak National Theatre (SND) launched by his predecessor, František Tóth.

He made the move after development plans for the SND that had been submitted by the tender participants leaked to the public before a planned hearing before the tender commission.

The minister will announce a new tender by the end of this week, the SITA news agency wrote.

Chmel also promised to do his best to prevent discrimination against applicants who submitted projects in the aborted tender.

The minister is also to change the makeup of the commission to include more opera, drama, and ballet artists as well as public sector managers, decreasing the influence of SND Council members.
