Slovak Television (STV) general director Štefan Nižňanský will again have to regain the trust of STV Council, its chairman Martin Kákoš said at the council's meeting on February 4.
Nižňanský, who narrowly survived a vote of no-confidence last month, has lost the trust of the council with "certain moves made under his watch," said Kákoš, adding that the council will closely examine every move of the STV director from now on.
Nižňanský's dismissal was proposed by Kakos, whose main reason for the move was a badly-prepared budget. However, Nižňanský maintained the post as at least ten votes are required for the removal of the STV director whereas only nine out of the 15 members of the council voted for his dismissal. TASR
