The selection of ministry advisors is fully in the power of individual ministers, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said after a Coalition Council meeting on May 2, the TASR newswire reported.
She spoke in response to Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš’s decision to appoint the former general director of Slovakia’s Tax Directorate, Miroslav Mikulčík, as an advisor at the ministry.
"Selection of advisors is fully in power of every minister and the (Finance) Minister bears full responsibility for his choice," said Radičová as quoted by TASR. She refused to offer any further comments.
Mikloš informed the coalition partners about further steps that will be made about the Kosice Tax Directorate office and submitted an analysis on the benefits of moving the tax bureaus into a single building. According to Most-Hid chair Béla Bugár, the finance minister will inform the public about specific steps at a press conference on May 3.
