PAVOL Rusko, deputy speaker of parliament and head of the coaltion New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party, declared as "nonsense" media rumours that he was considering leaving top politics.
Rusko was hospitalised with extremely high blood pressure in early April, and was later released to continue treatment at home.
Some media organisations, including the Nový Čas daily, speculated that Rusko was overworked and was planning to leave national politics.
Bur Rusko denied those speculations, saying he expected to return to work in "10 to 14 days"
