One of the members of the four-party ruling coalition, Most-Híd party, wants its partners in the government to agree to a temporary appointment of a minister without a portfolio who would take over certain responsibilities regarding the environment, the SITA newswire wrote.
Party leader Béla Bugár told SITA on September 13, that he intended to table this proposal at the Coalition Council meeting on Tuesday. It is one of several suggestions to resolve the situation when the Environment Ministry will renew its functioning two months later than the coalition had planned.
Bugár stressed that the incumbent Minister of Agriculture and Environment Zsolt Simon has a large number of tasks. The party leader said that Most-Hid has two candidates for this post but will not announce the names before the coalition agrees upon the solution.
