Čaplovič replaces Csáky as minority council head

DEPUTY Prime Minister Dušan Čaplovič has become the new chairman of Government Council for Ethnic Minorities and Groups. The Slovak cabinet approved the switch on October 3.

Čaplovic takes over from Pál Csáky, leader of the opposition ethnic Hungarian SMK party, who was deputy prime minister for minorities in the previous government.

The council is an advisory body to the Slovak government for ethnic minority policies. It includes representatives of ethnic associations and organisations, and meets twice a year.
