SDKÚ MP Tatiana Rosová was elected at her second attempt as the chair of the Parliamentary Committee for Education, Youth, Science and Sports, gaining a simple majority in a secret vote in Parliament on June 17, the TASR newswire wrote.

She will replace Ferdinand Devínsky, who resigned from the post after information surfaced about his co-operation with Communist Secret Service (ŠtB). Smer MP Juraj Horváth became the new head of the Parliamentary Foreign Committee instead of Boris Zala, who was elected as an MEP earlier this month, TASR reported.

The Committee for Conflicts of Interest also has a new chairperson - Agnes Biro from the ethnic-Hungarian political party SMK, who will replace Gabor Gal, and Jozsef Berenyi was elected the new chairman of the Human Rights Committee, taking the post after Laszlo Nagy. Both Gal and Nagy left the SMK party to form the new Most-Hid party.

Jozef Ďuračka from the Slovak National Party (SNS) will take the post of the Agricultural Committee chairman, left free after Ján Slaby became the new state secretary at the Agriculture Ministry. TASR
