SaS vice-chair Lucia Nicholsonova elaborated that there are various reasons why Draxler should be dismissed. These include the situation at the Methodology and Pedagogy Centre involving an alleged transaction fraud worth €460,000 and controversy surrounding the Iuventa building (Ekoiuventa) on Budkova Street in Bratislava after speculation emerged that the ministry was about to sell the area to make way for property development projects in what is viewed as one of the city's most pukka areas.
