Opposition will call for economy minister’s dismissal today

A no-confidence vote concerning Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek will be held at 9:00 this morning.

The proposal to have Jahnátek dismissed was signed by 58 MPs from all three opposition parties.

Jahnátek was criticized recently by the opposition for his comments on corruption in the arms trade during an interview with Trend magazine. The opposition claims that by making statements that encouraged corruption, he disqualified himself from public office and failed morally.

Jahnátek will be the first member of Fico's cabinet to face a no-confidence vote.
