Activists happy with Hrubala

NON-GOVERNMENTAL organisations welcomed the decision of ruling coalition parties to support lawyer Ján Hrubala as their candidate for the post of ombudsman. Hrubala withdrew his candidacy shortly before the first round of ombudsman elections in mid-February, a move that enabled him to run for the post again. The next parliamentary vote on the ombudsman is planned for March 19.
