PM loses confidence in security office boss

Prime Minister Mikulás Dzurinda announced that he would pursue the recall of the head of National Security Office (NBÚ), Jan Mojžiš, as he has totally lost confidence in the NBÚ boss.

The ruling coalition met late Tuesday over the issue. The Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) is against Mojžiš' recall, while the KDH remains undecided. The international community maintains its trust in the NBÚ head.

Dzurinda proposes that Interior Ministry state secretary Martin Pado (SDKU) replaces Mojžiš, the daily SME has reported. Pado was a co-founder of the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) and later joined Ludovit Černák's National Democratic Party, which merged with the liberal Democratic Union. Currently, he is an SDKÚ member.
