Štefanov, a nominee of the Slovak National party (SNS), replaces Marian Janušek, another SNS nominee, the SITA newswire wrote.

“… I would like to ask the media on this occasion for at least 100 days to concentrate on my work. And then everything else will, naturally, come," said Štefanov in a short address after his appointment as a cabinet member. Štefanov, who has been working for the Construction Ministry since 2006, subsequently refused to talk to media, according to SITA. He is the seventh minister to be replaced in less than three years of Prime Minister Robert Fico’s government. SITA
