The strongest candidate to replace Migaš is Agriculture Minister Pavol Koncoš. Koncoš has been supported by 31 out 81 SDĽ district bodies across the country.
"The support expressed from the districts should be an sign to leaders how strong their position within the party is," said SDĽ deputy Milan Ištván.
Migaš has been at the head of the SDĽ since 1996.
