NEWS BRIEFS

Deputy minister recalled for MP

DEPUTY Education Minister Františk Tóth was recalled by the Slovak government January 26 after his party, the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO), asked the cabinet to do so, the SITA news agency reported.

The reason for what is believed to be just a temporary recall is that ANO wants Tóth to replace ANO's former MP, Viktor Béreš, in parliament.

Béreš left ANO citing arrogant behaviour by ANO leader Pavol Rusko as the main reason for his departure.

ANO indirectly accused Béreš of corruption stating that the party had a letter confirming that Béreš had demanded a bribe.

Béreš rejected the allegation and wants to take the matter to court.
