New deputy ministers appointed

ŠTEFAN Kužma and Magda Vášáryová have been appointed new deputy construction and foreign affairs ministers respectively.

Kužma takes over from Ján Hurný of the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union. He stepped down after it turned out that he is listed as an agent of the former communist secret service (ŠtB).

Hurný denied cooperating with the ŠtB but left office to protect the reputation of his party.

Vášáryová, formerly Slovak ambassador to Poland, was appointed to the Foreign Ministry as replacement for
Ivan Korčok, who is the new Slovak ambassador to Germany.

Vášáryová will take up her appointment February 21, the daily SME reported.
