Coalition party HZDS will discuss a successor to the current Agriculture Minister, Stanislav Becík, on Tuesday, August 25,the party's secretary, Ivana Kapráliková, told TA3 television, which broadcast the information in its evening newscast on Monday, the TASR newswire wrote.

Becík's departure from his ministerial post has been talked about for some time. The official verdict, however, should be known on Tuesday. "There will be a replacement and that's why the extraordinary session of the political executive will be held," said Kapráliková, as quoted by TASR.

HZDS leader Vladimír Mečiar is said to have spoken with Prime Minister Robert Fico about Becík on August 20.

“Robert Fico hasn't been asked so far to make replacement at the Agriculture Ministry and Mr. Fico hasn't approved this replacement yet. He regards Becík as a good and capable minister,” Smer spokesperson Katarína Kližanová Rýsová told TA3.

Now it's Mečiar's turn to come with the proposal to dismiss Becík. “Tomorrow (Tuesday, August 25), Mečiar should meet the PM with regard to this matter and then we will see,” said Kapráliková. TASR
