Opposition SDKÚ deputy Eduard Kukan, who was elected MEP last Saturday, June 6, will be replaced by Jan Rusnak in the Slovak Parliament, said SDKÚ spokesperson Martin Matko to the SITA newswire. Rusnák had been listed as the SDKÚ’s next substitute to fill any party vacancy in parliament.

Another substitute, Ján Golian, replaced parliamentary deputy Iveta Radičová in April when she gave up her MP mandate after she was caught casting a vote in parliament for her party colleague Tatiana Rosová, a
violation of parliamentary rules.

The order of the replacement MPs is determined on the basis of their preferential votes in parliamentary elections in 2006. Jan Rusnak served as an SDKÚ deputy in the previous elections term, from 2002 to 2006 and chaired the Parliamentary Committee for Economy, Privatization and Business. SITA
