No-confidence vote in Janušek postponed

Parliament is to continue debating the opposition's proposal to hold a vote of no-confidence in Construction Minister Marián Janušek (a Slovak National Party/SNS nominee) on Tuesday, December 9, Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška told the TASR newswire on Decemebr 8. Monday's session was cut short when it was discovered that not enough MPs were present in the chamber to form a quorum. The no-confidence vote is a response to a controversial tender worth more than Sk3.6 billion (€120 million) for the provision of information, education, translation and interpreting services for securing EU funds. The opposition objects to the fact that a contract was signed with a consortium that includes companies that are allegedly close to SNS chairman Ján Slota. TASR
