Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said she feels responsible for the collapse of her government in October last year and therefore made the only possible decision she could make and that was to quit politics, the SITA newswire reported.

Radičová explained her position after she had received another "Iveta Do Not Leave" petition on March 7 as well as a huge bouquet of roses from the initiators of the petition.

"I thank you for your trust, but this is not the first petition; we have received several petitions and thousands of letters at the Government Office but my statement is still valid that it is my responsibility that the government fell and that it lost a confidence vote and I will bear this responsibility", Radičová stated, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

She added that "with all due respect, because of all that arrogance and vulgarity [in politics], I think I do not belong in this company".
