Ex-minister dies in car crash

FORMER Slovak Privatization Minister Ľubomír Dolgoš died after suffering serious injuries in a car accident December 29, according to the TASR news agency.

Dolgoš was the minister in the cabinet of former PM Vladimír Mečiar between 1992 and 1993. In June 1993 he left politics.

Before his term as minister, Dolgoš was also the chairman of the Slovak anti-monopoly office and an MP for Mečiar's Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) in the Czechoslovak federal parliament before the country split into independent republics in 1993.

In 2001 he became a member and later vice-chairman for economy of the ruling New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party.

Dolgoš was born on August 20, 1956.
