Slovak ministries must fill 463 European administrator roles before the end of August, according to the Government Office. Its chairman, Ľubomír Plai, said that the blame lay with individual ministries that had not yet filled their places.
Plai criticised ministries for not making sufficient use of funds intended to raise the salaries of ministry positions to make them more attractive to qualified candidates, and said that candidates were in fact being offered less than the national average wage.
The majority of the unfilled posts were in the Environment Ministry, Agriculture Ministry, and Labour Ministry.
