KDH and SMK lash out at Dzurinda

Ruling coalition partners, Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) boss Pavol Hrušovský, and Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) head Béla Bugár, lashed out at Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda for his recent efforts to sack Defence Minister Ivan Šimko, and head of the National Security Office (NBÚ) Ján Mojžiš.

"Recent steps taken by Dzurinda have created tensions not only within the ruling coalition, but the whole of society," Speaker of Parliament Hrušovský said. He demanded that Dzurinda pay more attention to the strategic interests of the state instead of elevating tensions.

Bugár claims that the efforts of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), to install its people in important posts, are dangerous. He also suggested that the SMK and KDH are expected to call on Dzurinda to withdraw his plan to sack Mojžiš.

However, New Citizens Alliance (ANO) leader Pavol Rusko remains strongly supportive of the prime minister.
