Slovakia PM ready to resign over murder of journalist

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has said he is prepared to resign if the President accepts that the current coalition can continue for the rest of its term without early elections.

Fico said he was ready to present a candidate for Prime Minister from his party.

It comes amid a political scandal caused by the murder of a journalist, Jan Kuciak who was investigating government corruption when he was killed.

His fiancée, Martina Kusnirova, was also murdered in an attack at their home.

Interior Minister Robert Kalinak resigned two days ago, bowing to pressure from a coalition partner, the Most-Hid party.

“Today I have offered my resignation to the president of the republic,” Fico told a news briefing. “If the President accepts it, I am ready to resign tomorrow.”
