Former Minister Milan Krajniak (We are a family) will return to the position of Head of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Family (MoLSAEO) of the Slovak Republic. The chairman of the National Council (NR) of the Slovak Republic and the We Are Family Boris Kollár movement informed about it after Wednesday’s government meeting.
He added that Prime Minister Eduard Heger (OĽANO) had agreed to the proposal. They have already informed the President of the Slovak Republic Zuzana Čaputová. According to Kollár, she is ready to appoint Krajniak to the position on Friday.
“We spoke to former Minister Krajniak despite his great reluctance. It was probably the most sensible solution on our part. After the debate with the president, even though we came there with other names, we agreed by consensus that we would give a proposal for our party to Prime Minister Heger, that we would re-occupy this ministry with Milan Krajniak, “said Kollár, adding that Heger accepted the proposal.
The head of Sme rodina added that they also accepted the president’s comments from the past, when she spoke about the need to occupy the department at the time of the pandemic by someone who knows him. The colleague also considers it necessary for the Ministry of Labor to be able to continue to pay out several forms of assistance on an ongoing basis. According to him, it is also necessary to tighten other aid schemes, which Krajniak has already started with. “The president promised me that she would do her best not to delay it, because the situation is serious, not only in the department, but also in the state,” he said.
Kollár has not yet mentioned possible nominations for the head of the Slovak Information Service (SIS). According to him, they should also sit down with the prime minister next week. He noted that they also discussed the topic with President Čaputová. According to him, she would welcome a professional. Kollár believes that I will find such a name with the Prime Minister.
Heger welcomed Krajniak’s nomination back to the post of Minister of Labor and is pleased that Krajniak has finally accepted the offer. He reminded that as a minister of finance he worked closely with his department and looks forward to further cooperation.
In connection with the head of the SIS, according to Heger, they will debate with Kollár to find a person “with whom we will all be satisfied and who will hold office in a way that is in Slovakia’s interest.”
