Zuzana Dlugošová will lead the Office for the Protection of Whistleblowers.
She was elected to the post by 80 of 117 MPs present in the parliament. Another candidate, Martin Rajňák, received eight votes.
Justice Minister Mária Kolíková (Za Ľudí) welcomed the election of the new head of the Office for the Protection of Whistleblowers. She also considers Dlugošová an appropriate person to fill the post.
“I’m glad that the parliament elected a new chair for the office,” Kolíková said in a statement, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “It’s very important if we want to rid society of corruption and murky practices.”
