Newly-appointed construction ministry official steps down

Michal Santai, the head of the Central Coordination Body (CKO) at the Construction Ministry, stepped down from his post on April 23 in reaction to an article published by the Sme daily earlier that day, the TASR newswire reported. The daily wrote that in 2009 Santai had defended the notorious 'bulletin-board tender' at the Construction Ministry. Santai was recently selected by new Transport Minister Ján Počiatek (Smer) to oversee the use of EU funds through this CKO office. Santai told the media about his decision to leave the post, stating that he did not want to jeopardise Počiatek's activities aimed at effective use of EU funds.
