Only one candidate proposed for NKÚ chair so far

Only one MP filed a proposal for a candidate for the election of the chief post of the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ), scheduled for June 25. Mária Ritomská of Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) suggested Ján Vrbacký, about whom she said has extensive experience with managing state bodies. The NKÚ is still led by Ján Jasovský, whose tenure expired last February, as parliament has failed to elect his successor after five attempts, the SITA newswire reported on June 14.

Only one MP filed a proposal for a candidate for the election of the chief post of the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ), scheduled for June 25. Mária Ritomská of Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) suggested Ján Vrbacký, about whom she said has extensive experience with managing state bodies. The NKÚ is still led by Ján Jasovský, whose tenure expired last February, as parliament has failed to elect his successor after five attempts, the SITA newswire reported on June 14.

Vrbacký previously worked as head of the inner audit at Bratislavská Vodárenská Spoločnosť, the district court in Bratislava and at the National Labour Inspectorate, SITA wrote.

According to the original agreement, the NKÚ post should have been filled by a candidate proposed by Freedom and Solidarity (SaS). The party’s two candidates, Kamil Krnáč and Vladimír Klimeš, did not receive enough votes, in part because of the ruling Smer party, which claimed that it would support the nominees only if they receive unanimous support from the opposition.

The latest election of the NKÚ chair failed after the parties of the People’s Platform, i.e. the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Most-Híd, withdrew their candidate, Maroš Žilinka. They did so after Smer refused to accept their proposal to change the election from a secret ballot to a public one, SITA reported.
