Opposition wants three cabinet ministers out

SEVERAL opposition parties have decided that three cabinet ministers - Health minister Rudolf Zajac, Labour Minister Ľudovít Kaník, and Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic - should be recalled from parliament.

The Slovak daily Pravda reported on November 23 that the parties - Movement for a Democratic Slovakia, Smer, the Communist Party, and the People's Union - do not know yet, however, when the recalls would take place in parliament.

The parties also agreed that they would appeal to the president, Rudolf Schuster, not to sign several cabinet laws including a law enabling the completion of the privatisation of strategic firms.
