Former economy minister might take ambassadorial post in Prague

Former Economy Minister Robert Nemcsics, who, after criticizing New Citizens' Alliance boss Pavol Rusko, was recalled from his post, will probably be Slovakia's ambassador to Prague, the daily SME reported.

Juraj Tomaga, the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has denied the information. "I could list an additional two or three names that have emerged [in association with this post]," Tomaga said.

However, a diplomatic source told news wire TASR that Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan has already asked President Rudolf Schuster to appoint Nemcsics to the post.

Currently, Ladislav Ballek, appointed on March 6, 2001, serves as the country's ambassador to the Czech Republic.
