Opposition wants three cabinet ministers out

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 when the recalls would take place in parliament.

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