"I'd like to continue with the existing activities of the office, which in my opinion enjoys high credit in Slovakia as well as in the EU," said Menyhart, as quoted by the TASR newswire. PMÚ chairs are appointed for a five-year term. The main purpose of the institution is to protect and support economic competition and create conditions for its further development. Menyhart studied at the Law Faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava. He worked as a lawyer for the Construction and Regional Development Ministry and has been a member of the supervisory board of Transpetrol since 2008.
