Auxt, a Sieť party nominee held this post during the office of the former transport minister Roman Brecely, the aktuality.sk website reported on September 5, adding that Auxt would be replaced by Juraj Valent who previously worked for the Slovak Road Administration and was a member of the NDS board. The recalling of Auxt was also confirmed for the SITA newswire by the Transport Ministry.

Érsek started his tenure as minister last week, replacing the resigning Sieť nominee Roman Brecely, after the balance of powers in the ruling coalition changed. The change stems from the internal crisis of Sieť when five MPs left for the caucus of Most-Híd. Sieť now has only two MPs in parliament, and has shown interest in merging with one of the coalition parties. After a coalition agreement, the strengthened Most-Híd takes over positions from Sieť, according to SITA.
