Kačaljak resigns owing millions

THE GOVERNMENT yesterday recalled Deputy Transport Minister Mikuláš Kačaljak from his post at his own request.

Kačaljak, a member of the ruling New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party, had been deputy minister since September 24, 2003, the TASR news agency reported.

ANO recommended Kačaljak step down because the ex-minister's firm owes several million crowns to social insurer Sociálna poisťovňa.

ANO chairman Pavol Rusko said the step was politically necessary to avoid "any shadow of doubt" being cast on the party.
