At the request of the MPs, the parliamentary education committee will deal with this case at a special session. Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) MP Miroslav Beblavý pointed out that in recent weeks, the ministry led Čaplovič signed several projects in a very short period of time, without public control, through direct order – worth a total of €100 million.
