BUSINESS BRIEFS

Cabinet wants STV to run business

THE CABINET has adopted legislation to enable the public service Slovak Television (STV) to run business. If the parliament passes the draft revision tailored by STV director Richard Rybníček, STV could set up other companies or become, as a stockholder, a co-owner of companies.

New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) nominees, Culture Minister Rudolf Chmel and Health Minister Rudolf Zajac, have opposed the draft. The head of their party, Pavol Rusko, had in the past been a co-owner of the private TV Markíza.

The move would also enable STV to use peoplemeters to measure station ratings and to found its own company for selling advertising time or collecting monthly viewer fees.

The STV management has promised to cut the company off the state budget.
