The government withdrew the nomination of Martin Klus as candidate of the Slovak Republic for a member of the European Court of Auditors (ECA). The Cabinet decided on this at Tuesday’s meeting after Klus gave up his candidacy.
The Committee of the European Parliament (EP) for budget control on Wednesday (March 22) recommended to the plenary not to approve the Slovak candidate Martin Klus as a member of the EDA. After Klus was heard, 20 members of the committee voted against him, with none voting in favor and three members abstaining.
The President of the SR Zuzana Čaputová subsequently asked the temporarily appointed Prime Minister Eduard Heger that the government withdraw Klus’ nomination. Heger responded that Klus should face the situation head on and ask to withdraw his candidacy.
