Šimulčík a promising NBÚ boss

THE CHRISTIAN Democrats (KDH) will back a Hungarian Coalition (SMK) candidate for head of the National Security Office (NBÚ), ruling partners confirmed after an October 14 coalition council meeting.

SMK chairman Béla Bugár said that PM Mikuláš Dzurinda was also willing to support the SMK candidate. An official statement from the PM was not available, however.

The new NBÚ boss should take office on November 1.

Previous NBÚ head Ján Mojžiš was recalled after Dzurinda said he had "completely lost trust" in the official, alleging Mojžiš had unspecified political and economic interests.
