The opposition SDKÚ-DS party on Thursday, April 23, named former agriculture ministry state secretary Ján Golian as its parliamentary replacement for MP Iveta Radičová, who gave up her mandate on the same day over her voting in parliament on behalf of another MP, the TASR newswire wrote.

The opposition SDKÚ-DS party on Thursday, April 23, named former agriculture ministry state secretary Ján Golian as its parliamentary replacement for MP Iveta Radičová, who gave up her mandate on the same day over her voting in parliament on behalf of another MP, the TASR newswire wrote.

Placing 32nd on the party list of candidates in the 2006 general election, Golian is currently active in Zvolen as a physical-education teacher at a secondary school, head of the physical education department at the Technical University, member of the Science Board at the Forestry Faculty, and member of the board of directors of the Wood Processors Union, TASR wrote.

Radičová announced on April 23 that she had decided to give up her MP's mandate in reaction to what she refers to as her mistake of voting on behalf of her party colleague Tatiana Rosová in parliament on Tuesday, thereby breaking the parliament’s Rules of Procedure. TASR
