Dzurinda fires Transport Minister Macejko

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda today will ask President Rudolf Schuster to accept the recall of Telecom and Transport Minister Jozef Macejko, who the PM says is responsible for a suspicious tender for 35 locomotives for the state railways company.

The tender, which is not completed but apparently involved the selections of a bid almost Sk1 billion more expensive than any other, has further shaken the credibility of Dzurinda’s SDKÚ party. The PM’s brother, Miroslav, was the head of the tender commission.
