Gašparovič signs Chmel's resignation

PRESIDENT Ivan Gašparovič has signed Culture Minister’s Rudolf Chmel’s letter of resignation, the president’s spokesman Marek Trubač told the TASR news agency May 21.

The president’s decision to grant Chmel’s request will be effective as of May 24. In the meantime, Finance Minister and Deputy Premier Ivan Mikloš will assume temporary leadership for the Culture Ministry.

Gašparovič’s decision to accept Chmel’s resignation came after a repeated request from Chmel on May 19 to do so. Chmel said that his decision to leave his post is definite, so he again asked Gašparovič to grant his request.
