KAMIL Krnáč, an MP from the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party, will be nominated to become the new director of Slovakia’s National Security Authority (NBÚ), the TASR newswire reported.
Leaders of the four-party coalition, which includes SaS, approved Krnáč’s nomination at a session of the Coalition Council on August 23.
Krnáč has already received the security clearance needed for the post. He will vacate his MP’s seat as soon as he is approved by parliament, which is expected at its next session beginning in September.
Krnáč is the fourth candidate SaS has proposed for the post after the other coalition parties had objected to its three previous nominees: Ján Stano because of past employment with the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) during the era of Vladimír Mečiar; Peter Paluda, rejected by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) for unspecified reasons; and Juraj Kliment, rejected by the Civic Conservative Party (OKS) because of his involvement as a judge in turning down an appeal of individuals who had claimed their innocence in their communist-era conviction in the death of Ľudmila Cervanová.
