Speaking on the same show, Parliamentary Vice-Chairman Miroslav Číž (Smer) denied such accusations. According to him, the minister must take responsibility for specific policies.

The main goal for new Health Minister Richard Raši will be cutting the debt in health care and Smer expects him to do well in his position, said Číž. Hort said that it was a open secret that Paška is actually in charge of the sector. TASR
