Slovakia’s PM resigns 2023

After the resignation of the interim prime minister, the political situation in Slovakia has become ambiguous. Eduard Heger urged President Zuzana aputová to remove him from his position as head of government.

Heger stated in a statement that the president had rejected his proposals to resolve the current political impasse in the country. He was in charge of the country until the upcoming elections at the end of September.

After a week of government resignations, a pro-Moscow party may take control.

Heger stated, “I promised you I would lead Slovakia to democratic elections in a stable and peaceful manner.” After the resignation of the second minister on Friday, I decided not to wait and yesterday I presented President Zuzana aputová with alternatives that I view as more stable and less hazardous than appointing a provisional government for the final few months of this election period.”

Agriculture Minister Samuel Vican resigned on Thursday following an investigation into a €1.4 million subsidy his company received. The next day, Foreign Minister Rastislav Kacer announced his departure.

Since then, the president of the country has appointed a prominent banker, Deputy Governor Ludovit Odor, to head a technocratic government.

In September, Slovakia will hold general elections, and polls indicate that voters incline toward the pro-Russia Smer-SD party, which opposes sending military aid to Ukraine.
