The next Slovak parliamentary election will be held in or before March 2020. All 150 members of the National Council will be elected and the leader of the resultant government will become the Prime Minister.

Background[edit]

Direction - Social Democracy has won 2016 election and formed a coalition government with nationalist Slovak National Party, inter-ethnic Most-Híd and centrist Network. Incumbent prime minister Robert Fico remained in the office.[1]

Leadership changes[edit]

Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK-MKP) were two parties, which couldn't pass 5 percent threshold to the parliament but further gained more than 4% (KDH got 4,9 percent, while SMK-MKP got 4,1 percent). KDH lost all of its 16 seats while SMK-MKP haven't gained any. Leader of the KDH, Ján Figeľ, announced his resignation few days after 2016 election. He was then replaced by Alojz Hlina on 11 June 2016.[2] Leadership of SMK-MKP, which was led by József Berényi was replaced by József Menyhárt on 11 June 2016.[3]

On 12 August 2016, incumbent leader of coalition party Network (SIEŤ), Radoslav Procházka, announced that he had no further intention to lead his party after a disastrous result in the election. A day later on 13 August at the party convention, it was decided that the new leader of the party would be Roman Brecely, his fellow party member and incumbent minister of transportation. He was the only candidate to stand up for the post although he didn't intend to run for the office.[4]

On 15 March 2018, Robert Fico announces his resignation as Prime Minister of Slovakia which the President Andrej Kiska accepted. Peter Pellegrini, currently minister for Investment & Informatization, becomes the new Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic. Fico remains the leader of Direction - social democracy. Pellegrini's cabinet was appointed on 22 March 2018.
