Problems with new district offices

SOME experts and heads of the country's district offices have warned that public administration might run into chaos related to the recently approved law that is part of the public administration reform.

The law abolishes 79 district authorities, replaces them with 50 new offices, and introduces dozens of small specialized administrative units that will deal with agenda such as environmental affairs, transportation issues, social affairs, and land matters. The respective ministries will administer these specialized offices, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote on November 25.

But several heads of the current districts confirmed for the daily that they were still unclear about how many employees the new offices would have.

Štefan Farkaš, head of the Nitra district office, said to Pravda: "We don't know how many people will leave the office."

According to Interior Ministry spokesman Boris Ažaltovič, the staff numbers are clear. He also said that those offices that fall under the Interior Ministry would start working without any problems.
