Nine of the fifteen council members voted for Nižňanský’s dismissal, including Chairman Bohumír Bobovo, Martin Kákoš, Anna Miklovičová and Ingrid Fašiangová. Opposing the move, among others, was Peter Malec. According to the law, at least two thirds of all council members must vote in favour for the general manager to be recalled, and the vote must be public. SME
