Dzurinda offered NBÚ top post to coalition partners

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has offered the National Security Office (NBÚ) top post to all his ruling coalition partners. He refuses to confirm that the SDKÚ will automatically take over the position once NBÚ boss Ján Mojžiš is sacked, as some have suggested.

Dzurinda has failed to remove the security office head, who has received the continued support of part of the ruling coalition. The PM claims that Mojžiš has abused his post and has been involved in murky lobbying activities.

Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) leader Pavol Hrušovský rejected the PM's offer.

The coalition partners have accused the SDKÚ of wanting to gain control of all the important power posts.
