When Economy Minister Richard Sulík (SaS) faced a no-confidence vote in parliament at the end of October, the opposition asked him to address rumours that he owned a ranch in Australia.

Sulík confirmed he indirectly owns a ranch in Australia through a company he owns with two other people. The co-owners are neither politicians nor business people, the SaS spokesperson later specified for the Sme daily.

"I will not tell you who owns the ranch with me, I will not. They are two natural persons unknown to the public," Sulík said in parliament. He also stated that the ranch, which he has owned since December 2019, cost him a sum equivalent to "the price of a better flat in Bratislava".

The economy minister is currently facing more questions linked to his daughter's participation in the ministerial delegation at the Expo in Dubai.
