Government looking to dismiss SRo head

On December 20, the Sme daily wrote that the ruling coalition was seeking more influence over state-owned Slovak Radio (SRo). After the dismissal last week of the director of public broadcaster Slovak Television (STV) Radim Hreha by the STV Council, the Coalition would now like to dismiss SRo head Miloslava Zemková as well. Hreha, who was close to Smer-SD, had to go because of his failure to lead the company. Zemková's dismissal would allow the Coalition to gain more influence over the SRo.

"The Government is very dissatisfied with her, but they realize that they are unable to dismiss her through the SRo Council, so they're looking for ways to weaken her position and get rid of her later," an unnamed source close to Smer is quoted as having said. TASR
