At its session on October 5 the Slovak cabinet gave its approval to the
appointment of Tibor Menyhart as the new chairman of the Anti-Monopoly Office. President Ivan Gašparovič will then decide on the actual appointment based on the government's proposal, the SITA newswire reported.
Deputy Prime Minister and Transport Minister Ján Figeľ from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) submitted the proposal to appoint Menyhart. The term of the current chairperson, Danica Paroulková, expires on October 25. She has served in the post for two five-year terms.
According to the law on protection of economic competition passed in 2001, the same person can be appointed for only two consecutive five-year terms.
