In addition to Šramko the council will have two other members appointed for seven years, economists Ľudovít Ódor and Michal Horváth. The three nominations were approved by parliament’s financial committee, which recommended that the full parliament appoint these individuals to the new council.

The Fiscal Council is an independent body that will monitor and assess developments in the Slovak economy and fulfilment of the law’s rules on budgetary responsibility. The council will submit regular reports on long-term sustainability, on meeting budget rules under the law as well as provide guidance on the impact of legislative proposals before parliament from the perspective of the state budget and long-term sustainability.
