Lipšic and Žitňanská's departure will leave the KDH caucus with 14 MPs, making the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO), which has 16 seats, the second largest caucus in parliament (after Smer, the governing party) and the largest among the opposition parties, the TASR newswire wrote. Lipšic and Žitňanská will continue to hold their seats as independent MPs.

Lipšic is reportedly also set to give up his post of head of the parliamentary committee for supervising the SIS intelligence agency.
