Andrej Hrnčiar, the mayor of Martin (located in Žilina Region) and an MP from Most-Híd party, has been named to a United Nations group of experts who will be tasked with drawing up proposals for combating corruption in public administration, the TASR newswire reported.
Membership on the committee represents another accolade for Martin’s project called the ‘Transparent Town’ after the town was recently awarded the 2011 United Nations Public Service Award for North America and Europe in the category of ‘Preventing and Combating Corruption in Public Service’, Hrnčiar told TASR.
The mayor of Martin will take part in meetings at UN headquarters in New York next month. He told TASR he is pleased at having the chance to represent not only Martin but Slovakia as a whole at the UN.
