Ethnic issues passed to Human Rights plenipotentiary Rudolf Chmel
The agenda for ethnic minority cultural issues has been transferred to Deputy PM for Human Rights and Minorities, Rudolf Chmel (Most-Hid), having been dealt with to date by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The government decided on the move today, 13, August.
Chmel will be responsible for co-ordinating issues on human rights, ethnic minorities, equal treatment and gender equality and will also oversee the allocation of financing for these areas.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism on the other hand, having only fairly recently adopted its new name, is due to switch back to its former title of Ministry of Culture in November, as the agenda for tourism will now be transferred to the Ministry of Transport.
