Cabinet appoints new Director General of the state news agency

On April 5, the Cabinet accepted the resignation of Peter Nedavaska from the post of director general of the state-run news agency Tlačová Agentúra Slovenskej Republiky (TASR) and appointed his successor, Jaroslav Rezník, who was nominated by Culture Minister Marek Maďarič.

Rezník, who until now has served as State Counsellor at the Culture Ministry, was installed in his new post on the same day. He told SITA that preparation of new legislation for TASR, on which he has already been working at the Culture Ministry, would be his priority.
