State secretary – i.e. deputy ministry – at the Transport Ministry is to be former MEP Ján Hudacký, while physician Ján Porubský, chairman of the Union of Christian Doctors and Health-care Workers, will take up the state secretary post at the Health Ministry. Figeľ told the SITA newswire that the nomination of the Interior Ministry state secretary has yet to be approved.
