The health care sector was the victim of former health minister Ivan Valentovič, while Valentovič was the victim of Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška, Parliamentary Vice-Chairman Milan Hort (SDKÚ) alleged on the state-owned Slovak Television (STV) political discussion show 'O 5 minut 12' (5 minutes to 12) on June 8.

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
