Krnáč might be left without NBÚ position and parliamentary seat

The consequences of yesterday’s failed confidence vote and the subsequent fall of the government are now being worked through. It seems inevitable that several ministers, especially those from Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), whose failure to back the government led to its fall, will return to parliament and that their substitutes will thus have to leave. One of these is SaS MP Kamil Krnáč (SaS), who was recently nominated by his party to chair the National Security Office (NBÚ). It now seems unlikely that he will be selected for the position, and he may also be forced to leave his seat as an MP. Krnáč is the substitute for Culture Minister Daniel Krajcer (SaS).

Krnáč was proposed for the NBÚ position on July 6, and since then he has been waiting to be formally selected by MPs, the SITA newswire wrote on Wednesday, October 12.

Other substitute MPs for SaS, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), and – to a lesser extent – Most-Híd now face a similar fate. All MPs who have been in parliament for less than five years will get two months’ severance pay if they have to leave parliament prematurely; if they were deputies for more than five years they will get three months’ severance pay.
