Christian Democrats want the head of Economy Minister Rusko

THE CHRISTIAN Democratic Movement (KDH) is calling for the resignation of Economy Minister Pavol Rusko. The KDH warned that if Rusko does not leave the cabinet, it would no longer function in its current form, the daily SME wrote.

KDH Chairman Pavol Hrušovský said that Rusko, who also serves as the head of ruling coalition party New Citizens Alliance (ANO), has been damaging the cabinet’s credit. Rusko is unable to explain how he paid off bills of exchange worth Sk100 million, which he signed for businessman Lubomír Blaško.

The KDH has already called on Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda to propose to the Slovak president that he sack Rusko. The PM said that the ruling coalition council, the top body of coalition parties, would discuss Rusko's bills of exchange at its next meeting on August 23.
