Šramko, whose five-year term in office of NBS governor expired at the end of 2009, himself turned down the opportunity for a second term. The government and parliament approved the proposal for the new governor's (Jozef Makúch) appointment in December and President Ivan Gašparovič appointed him to the post on Monday, January 11.
