Schmognerová resigns

Finance Minister Brigita Schmognerová yesterday announced she would tender her resignation next Monday, ending a brief but tense coalition stand-off between Prime Minister Dzurinda and Schmognerová’s SDĽ party over the seat. In an interview with the daily paper Pravda, she said the government needed to explain its actions better to the public, and said she was leaving her post because of lack of support from the SDĽ.
