Gašparovič offers official farewell to Prime Minister Radičová

President Ivan Gašparovič offered an official farewell to Prime Minister Iveta Radičová from the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) on April 2 as her entire government is set to resign on April 4, the TASR newswire reported. Gašparovič's spokesman, Marek Trubač, told TASR that the president received Radičová in the Presidential Palace and thanked her for her work as the head of the government. Gašparovič, who had defeated Radičová in a run-off election for president in 2009, added that their level of cooperation had been appropriate. The president presented Radičová with a bouquet of flowers and wished her all the best in her personal life, Trubač said. In late 2011 Radičová announced that she would leave politics as well as her political party after the new government was formed following the March 10 parliamentary election. The outgoing prime minister will take the post of lecturer at St. Anthony's College in Great Britain that specialises in international relations, economics, political science, history and anthropology. Radičová pursued post-doctoral studies at Oxford University in 1990.
