KDH renegades mostly staying put on committees

The four prominent renegades of the opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), who left the party in February because they felt it had strayed from its original values, have given up their position on two parliamentary committees, but remain members of others.

The four prominent renegades of the opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), who left the party in February because they felt it had strayed from its original values, have given up their position on two parliamentary committees, but remain members of others.

The two committees the members left were formed on the basis of proportional representation, the SITA newswire wrote, yet KDH deputy faction head Maria Sabolová said that the party did not ask its former members to leave.

Moreover, Vladimír Palko has not departed the Parliamentary Committee for Defense and Security. The KDH suggested to approve KDH MP Jozef Šimko for the post, but the governing coalition rejected that proposal.

Sabolová said that the party would not demand Palko's departure.

Parliament agreed with the proposal to replace Pavol Minárik in the Parliamentary Committee for Conflict of Interest with Monika Gibalová. However, Minárik remains the head of the Parliamentary Committee for Culture and Media. Martin Fronc will replace Rudolf Bauer in the Parliamentary Committee for European Affairs.

The changes also concerned permanent delegations to the Parliamentary Assembly of NATO and the OSCE.

Stanislav Kahanec will replace Bauer in the case of OSCE and Jozef Šimko will replace Palko. František Mikloško remains deputy chairman of the Committee for Human Rights, National Minorities and the Status of Women of the Slovak Parliament. SITA
