Opposition nominee Ján Tóth will be appointed Slovak central bank (NBS) vice-governor, parliament decided on Tuesday, June 26.

In a secret vote, 121 MPs out of 135 present voted for Tóth, who was nominated by the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) based on agreement with the rest of the opposition. Tóth served as chief economist of the Financial Ministry’s Financial Policy Institute during the previous government, the TASR newswire wrote. Tóth, who has also served as chief economist for Tatra Banka and ING Bank, will join the current vice-governor Viliam Ostrožlík. The post of the second vice-governor has been vacant since January 2010, when the tenure of Martin Barto expired.
