Opposition proposes economy minister's dismissal

Fifty-eight opposition party MPs have signed a motion of no confidence concerning Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek.

Caucus heads Milan Hort (SDKU), Július Brocka (KDH), and Guyla Bárdos (SMK) submitted the proposal to Parliament on April 10. At the same time, the opposition requested a special session of parliament to discuss the motion. The session should convene seven days after the proposal is submitted.

Jahnátek was recently criticized by the opposition for his statements apparently supporting corruption in arms industry, published as part of an interview with the Trend magazine.

The opposition maintains that in the interview he said he covered up for corruption in state companies and encouraged corruption.

Jahnátek has replied that the media misinterpreted his words.
