Sakova: Bill on Selection of Police Chief Still Unresolved in Coalition


      Bratislava, September 12 (TASR) - Interior Minister Denisa Sakova (Smer-SD) didn't present a bill on changing the method of selecting the national police chief to the cabinet for discussion on Wednesday, stating that there wasn't a consensus on the latest draft in the governing Coalition.
      Sakova, who last week said that disputes on the draft would be resolved by the end of the week and the bill could be presented to the Government on Wednesday, wasn't more specific on who has objecting to the current wording. However, she revealed that the objections concerned the planned seven-year term of the new police chief.
      The Interior Ministry's latest proposal didn't specify any length for the police chief's term, while it stipulated that he or she could be dismissed by a simple majority in the parliamentary defence and security committee, said Sakova, adding that she wants to see the bill presented to Parliament by October.
