The results of an audit of city finances by the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) in the eastern-Slovak city led Prešov representatives to reduce Mayor Pavol Hagyari’s salary to the minimum stipulated by law, €2,568. The reduction is planned for three months, the Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday, July 2 issue.

The NKÚ found violations of financial discipline and of five laws, which led to the reduction of the mayor’s salary from €3,340, which was approved by 15 of 22 city representatives. The move was initiated by representative Andrea Turčanová (who was nominated by the Christian-Democratic Movement [KDH], Slovak Democratic and Christian Union [SDKÚ], Freedom and Solidarity [SaS] and Most-Híd).
