Rusko accused of cronyism

DURING his tenure as Economy Minister, Pavol Rusko placed many of his loyal party members to high executive and managerial posts in state-owned companies, the Pravda daily reported.

The people involved deny that their appointments have anything to do with their political involvement, however. All of them insist that they received their appointments due to their professional qualities.
