SaS fields fourth candidate to lead NBÚ

Ruling coalition party Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) MP Kamil Krnáč is likely to assume the post of National Security Authority (NBÚ) head, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová announced after a session of the Coalition Council on Wednesday, July 6. Krnáč needs a top-level security clearance to take up the post, but the process has already begun, she added.

Ruling coalition party Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) MP Kamil Krnáč is likely to assume the post of National Security Authority (NBÚ) head, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová announced after a session of the Coalition Council on Wednesday, July 6. Krnáč needs a top-level security clearance to take up the post, but the process has already begun, she added.

According to Radičová, all four coalition parties accepted Krnáč, who is SaS's fourth nominee to lead the NBÚ, Slovakia's main security vetting agency. "We've studied the CV of the MP [Krnáč]. I for one have no objections to such a proposal," she said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. Radičová conceded that it is a political nomination. "I'd personally welcome a candidate with no political backing, but I won't disqualify him [Krnáč] out of hand on the grounds of his SaS membership," she asserted, dismissing notions that Krnáč, 34, is too young for the post. SaS has already proposed three candidates - Ján Stano, Peter Paluda and Juraj Kliment – but all three were rejected by at least one other coalition party.
