Gábor Gál, a former member of the ethnic-Hungarian SMK party, confirmed on Tuesday, June 9, that he has given up his post as chairman of the parliamentary committee for conflicts of interest, the TASR newswire wrote.

Gál, who left the SMK parliamentary caucus in April and the party itself on June 7, made the announcement at a press conference held by the newly-formed Most-Hid party, which has been set up by several defectors from SMK.

Another SMK defector, László Nagy, who is the chairman of the Slovak parliament's human rights, minorities, and women's committee, will make a statement next week. The chair posts in these committees are designated for SMK members according to parliamentary agreements. TASR
