According to the proposal to establish the council, which the Cabinet will discuss on September 24, Economy Minister Lubomir Jahnátek is to serve as its deputy chair and Finance Ministry State Secretary Peter Kazimír will be its secretary.

The council’s role will be to combat "groundless" price hikes during the euro changeover. It will have the power to issue orders to Cabinet ministers to implement necessary steps in case of unfavorable price development. SITA
