According to Tóthová, Sulík will probably step down as head of the SaS parliamentary caucus as soon as the upcoming parliamentary session planned for October 12, and will be replaced by one of three SaS MPs: Martin Poliačik, Jozef Kollár or Kamil Krnáč. SaS MPs will decide on their new caucus leader in a secret vote. Tóthová said that Sulík was leaving the role owing to his workload as speaker of parliament.
