No agreement over sacking NBÚ head

The ruling coalition has failed to reach agreement over the recall of National Security Office (NBÚ) boss Ján Mojžiš, as the Christian Democrats and Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) continue rejecting the efforts of Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda to have Mojžiš sacked, the daily SME reported.

Dzurinda claims that the NBÚ leader has completely lost his confidence. However, NATO circles have been supportive of Mojžiš.

Offering a compromise, the prime minister has given up his intentions to replace a recalled Mojžiš with deputy minister of the Interior Ministry Martin Pado. His coalition partners strongly opposed the idea of Pado taking over the NBÚ.

Media have speculated that Dzurinda might want to push through his adviser Milan Ježovič to the post.

SMK's Belá Bugár said that Dzurinda has failed to bring forward new arguments for sacking Mojžiš.
