SPF head Šebek nominated for Environment Ministry State Secretary

The current head of the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) Miloslav Šebek will become Environment Ministry State Secretary as of September 24.

The current head of the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) Miloslav Šebek will become Environment Ministry State Secretary as of September 24.

"Prime Minister Robert Fico nominated Miloslav Šebek for the post of the Environment Ministry State Secretary. Environment Minister Ján Chrbet will submit this nomination at the cabinet session," Smer spokesperson Katarína Kližanová-Rýsová confirmed.

The ministers will deal with the proposal at the cabinet's session on September 24.

Dušan Munko, who was appointed the new head of the social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa, held this post until now.

The ruling coalition partner HZDS demanded Šebek's dismissal from the post of the SPF head last year. The party criticised him for long-term inability to communicate with the agriculture ministry.
