Fair-Play Alliance calls on PM to set rules for cabinet members

Prime Minister Robert Fico will request that ministers use governmental cars and other perks for work purposes only at the next cabinet meeting. This move is in response to Justice Minister Štefan Harabin’s allowing his family to use his ministerial car.

The PM respects the decision of the Parliamentary Conflict-of-Interest Committee to halt the administrative proceedings against Harabin, however, he takes into consideration the social and economic situation in Slovakia and the sensitivity of the given topic, and that is why he decided to ask his ministers to respect the principles of political culture and not misuse the perks of their posts.
