SDKÚ: Sack Tomanová or quit

That Minister of Labour, Social Affairs, and Family Viera Tomanová has become entangled in a scandal concerning a subsidy to the Privilégium NGO is regrettable, sad, and immoral, and it requires her dismissal, Mikuláš Dzurinda, leader of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union-Democratic Party (SDKÚ-DS), told a news conference on August 15.

Dzurinda added that if Prime Minister Robert Fico, who has stood by Tomanová since the issue emerged, doesn’t fire the minister, he should step down himself. SITA
