Opposition agrees to try to oust Economy Minister

THE THREE parliamentary opposition parties agreed on March 26 to propose a no-confidence vote in parliament to try to force the resignation of Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek.

The parties will submit their proposition on April 10.

The head of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, former Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, said they want to push for Jahnátek's dismissal because Prime Minister Robert Fico refused to take any action against the minister.
