Coalition partners may request minister's resignation

At yesterday's meeting of coalition parties Economy Minister Ľubomír Harach informed the partners about the disputable sale of 21.24 percent shares of VZS steel maker. Although Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda thought that Harach's decision to OK the sale was "absolutely in his competence", head of the Party of Civil Understanding Pavol Hamžík said that if it proves that the minister was aware that the shares could have been sold for a higher price "we'll require consequences to be drawn".
