Parliamentary posts to be filled next week

NEXT week the Slovak parliament should decide on the new heads of two parliamentary committees. The spots have remained vacant since the recent elections to the European parliament and the resignation of Vojtech Tkác as the social affairs committee chairman.

According to the Pravda daily, the committee for European affairs should be led either by Smer's Pavol Paška or the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia's Tibor Mikuš.

Christian Democrat Pavol Paška will likely lead the social affairs committee.
