Kandráč of HZDS takes ombudsman vote

Despite an agreement by coalition parties to support the election of lawyer Ján Hrubala to the new post of ombudsman (a public defender of human rights), parliament yesterday elected the candidate of the opposition HZDS, Pavel Kandráč, to the job in a secret ballot. Coalition MPs said members of the leftist SDĽ and SOP government parties had joined forces with the opposition, a tactic they have been using to foil key reform legislation since last July.
