Nižňanský back behind public administration wheel

Viktor Nižňanský as of January 2003 returns to the post of coordinator of public administration reform, which he resigned in 2001 after the previous parliament rejected his reform strategy.

Nižňanský said he would not fight to have his original plan followed, which argued for 12 rather than 8 regional governments, but would help implement the current government’s programme statement, which calls for greater decentralisation.
