Igor Federič will become the next head of the Government Office head, said Smer chairman and future Prime Minister Robert Fico at a news conference on April 3, the TASR newswire reported.

"I'm going back to a person who already had that post in 2006-10," Fico stated, as quoted by TASR.

The new government will discuss nominations for heads of ministry service offices and the head of the Government Office at its first official session on April 4 "because new ministers will have an immediate need for a right-hand person that can help them deal with administrative issues," Fico said.

At the April 11 session of the cabinet the discussion will shift to the ministries’ state secretaries (i.e. deputy ministers).

"At the moment, I can add that I'll propose Mr. Ján Valko as the head of the Slovak Intelligence Service-SIS," Fico told the media at the news conference.
