Former PM Dzurinda says both Environment Ministry and Fico are responsible

Former Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, from the SDKÚ party, considers that getting out of the scandalous sales contract for excess emissions quotas is the main issue and not the sacking of Environment Minister Viliam Turský, the SITA newswire reported.

Former Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, from the SDKÚ party, considers that getting out of the scandalous sales contract for excess emissions quotas is the main issue and not the sacking of Environment Minister Viliam Turský, the SITA newswire reported.

Dzurinda said that Slovakia has already lost a huge amount through this contract and if it does not terminate the contract the damage could be even worse, adding at a news conference on Thursday, August 20 that Prime Minister Fico was directly responsible for every ministerial nomination.

So far, however, Dzurinda does not intend to initiate a proposal in parliament to sack Fico.

Dzurinda also stated that Fico did not permit the former environment minister, Ján Chrbet, to put the proposal for the emissions sale contract to the government cabinet. “So the blame is also on Robert Fico,” Dzurinda concluded, as quoted by the SITA newswire. SITA
