SDKÚ exerts influence over postal firm

THE RULING Slovak Democratic and Christian Union of PM Mikuláš Dzurinda has asserted its dominance over the state-owned postal company Slovenská Pošta (SP), reported the SME daily.

Following the transformation of the state firm to a 100 percent state-owned joint stock company on October 1, SP's management was also changed, and members and associates of the SDKÚ now have a major say in the company.

The Transport Ministry has a decisive influence on the composition of SP's board of directors. The ministry is led by Pavol Prokopovič from SDKÚ. The Transport Ministry, however, denies the allegation that its nominations to the SP's boards were politically motivated.
