Slovakia’s Prime Minister Eduard Heger has tendered his letter of resignation following a political crisis which has rocked the country.
According to The Economic Times, Heger also requested that President Zuzana Caputova remove him from the mandate to lead the government.
Heger noted that after “considering the political reality” and “what is best for the citizens”, he decided that “Slovakia, traumatised by conflicts, does not deserve the political crisis to continue even for another day”. “Therefore, I decided to ask to be relieved of my post and thus leave room for the president to try to lead Slovakia to the elections in a stable and calm manner with the official government,” added Heger
Heger declared that he would do everything to ensure that the handover of the resorts was as smooth as possible.
“After my personal meeting with the President this afternoon, we will coordinate all subsequent steps related to the handover of government and communicate to the public as soon as possible so that there is no confusion,” he added
