NEWS BRIEFS

Political nominees questioned

VIKTOR Nižňanský, the cabinet's plenipotentiary for the ongoing public administration reform, said that the cabinet should reconsider the planned political nominations to the posts in new regional governmental offices.

Nižňanský said that candidates for the posts should be picked based on their working qualities in regular job interviews, as had been originally planned.

MPs approved a change to the law on new district offices, enabling the cabinet to name the heads of the offices. Observers agreed that this would inevitably lead to political nominations.

The cabinet has not reacted to Nižňanský's appeal.
