Goran Nikolovski, director of the Administration for Security and Counterintelligence (UBK) and his deputy director Arif Asani, are on the list for dismissal proposed by the Government today. Their dismissal comes shortly after the establishment of the National Security Agency (NSA).

The new National Security Agency will have fewer employees than the Administration for Security and Counterintelligence. Employees who will not pass the personnel filter will be allocated to the Ministry of Interior or other institutions.

The National Security Agency was formed as a result of the reform process in the security services, as a replacement for the UBK.

The first director of the NSA will be Viktor Dimovski, former state secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Dimovski is currently the only employee of the NSA.

From 2007 to 2009, Dimovski was director of the Intelligence Agency, with the decision of the then President, Branko Crvenkovski.
