NEWS BRIEFS

No info about the new offices

THE CABINET has failed to inform citizens of the addresses and telephone numbers of the new public administration offices that were created on January 1, the daily Pravda wrote.

Analyst Jaroslav Pilát said: "The ministries failed completely. As soon as they approved the laws [on new offices], they should have launched a massive campaign."

No such campaign took place, however, and many of the new offices still do not have their phone numbers registered in the phone book.

With the coming of the new year, eight regional and 79 old district offices were shut down as part of the ongoing public administration reform, and new specialized offices were opened throughout the country.

Viktor Nižňanský, the father of the country's public administration reform, admitted that more should have been done to inform the public of the new addresses, contact numbers, and office hours.
