No agreement over new NBÚ boss

THE COALITION has failed to agree on the new head of the National Security Office (NBÚ).

Two out of four ruling parties, the liberal New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), each insisted on its own candidate for the post.

Pavol Hrušovský, chairman of the ruling Christian Democrats (KDH), announced that the coalition wanted to agree on a name that would be acceptable for all ruling partners.

If it proves impossible to find such a candidate by the end of the month, the cabinet will prolong the term of acting NBÚ head Matej Sudor until the end of this year.

The NBÚ top seat became vacant on October 2 after PM Mikuláš Dzurinda initiated a recall of the former head of the institution, Ján Mojžiš, citing a "total loss of trust" in the official.
