CLUTURE Minister Rudolf Chmel handed in his resignation to Slovak President Ivan Gašparovic yesterday, Pravda daily wrote.
The president will inform the minister when he has confirmed the resignation with his signature.
Chmel said he was leaving his post because of "objective as well as subjective reasons".
His replacement should be the current Deputy Education Minister František Tóth, who is a member of the same party - the ruling liberal New Citizen's Alliance.
