THE TRADE Unions Confederation (KOZ) elected Miroslav Gazdík as its new president in a secret ballot on October 18. Gazdík, the current mineworkers' trade union chairman, will take up his post on December 1.

He received 86 out of 96 votes at the KOZ congress; eight delegates voted against the candidate. Gazdík ran unchallenged in the election.
