Deputy education minister recalled

FRANTIŠEK Tóth was recalled as deputy education minister per agreement by the coalition partners. He is expected to take over as culture minister.

Tóth, a member of the New Citizen's Alliance party (ANO), will become ANO's MP for the time being, until President Ivan Gašparovič decides whether to give him the Culture Ministry’s top seat, the SME daily wrote.

Tóth leaves the Education Ministry after serious conflicts with Education Minister Martin Fronc, a member of the Christian Democratic Movement.

According to Gašparovič’s spokesperson, Marek Trubač, the president will decide whether to name Tóth as Culture Minister in the next few days.
