As of September 1, 2010, the Environment Ministry will re-emerge as a separate, stand-alone authority, Parliament decided on Wednesday, August 11. The decision is in line with an amendment to the General Administration Act, which returns to the arrangement in place in the period before July 1, the day on which the old ministry was merged with the Agriculture Ministry.
In the August 11 parliamentary vote coalition MPs were joined by Smer MP Miroslav Číž, the only opposition lawmaker to vote in favour. The Environment Ministry will be led by a nominee of the coalition’s Most-Híd party.
