On Wednesday, July 21, the Slovak cabinet appointed Roland Sill to the post of government proxy for information society. He will take up the post immediately. His appointment was preceded by the recall of his predecessor, Pavol Tarina, based on a proposal by Prime Minister Iveta Radičová.
The cabinet also approved the nomination of Miroslav Pollák to the post of government proxy for Roma communities. He replaces Ľudovít Galbavý, the SITA newswire wrote.
The cabinet also dismissed Daniel Duchoň from the post of government proxy for the preparation and realisation of an informal meeting of NATO defence ministers in Slovakia. Duchoň, former state secretary at the Defence Ministry, was appointed to the post on August 27, 2008. The cabinet cancelled the post together with its status, which defines its position, tasks, powers, and responsibilities.
The cabinet also decided that the prime minister will submit to the president a proposal to dismiss the director of the SIS intelligence service, Jozef Magala, and appoint Karol Mitrík in his place.
