Interior minister plans to review past tenders

NEW interior minister Robert Kaliňák plans to look into past tenders that took place at the ministry under former minister Vladimír Palko.

He also did not rule out interfering in the ongoing tenders for the supply of new ID documents or for a system for the protection of the state borders.

For now, however, Kaliňák has not said whether he wants to keep the current head of the police presidium Anton Kulich in the job.

He only said that "so far we've not had any major conflicts".

One of the first personnel changes in the ministry was the rehabilitation of the former head of police labor union Miroslav Litva to his post. Palko recalled Litva last year for organizing protests of police officers due to low wages.
