Opposition wants two ministers out

HEALTH Minister Rudolf Zajac and Labour Minister Ľudovít Kaník may face no-confidence votes in parliament if the opposition parties agree on a strategy to sack the ministers.

The Smer party initiated a meeting of fellow opposition parties to discuss the possible no-confidence vote in Zajac, over what Smer said was the minister's ruthless attitude towards health sector reform.

The Communist Party (KSS), meanwhile, said that it will initiate a discussion of the possible no-confidence vote in Kaník over his responsibility for cuts in the social sphere.

The KSS thinks that Kaník's measures further decrease the country's living standards and have the toughest effect on socially weak inhabitants.
