It is expected that a nominee from the opposition parties will become the new head of the NKÚ after Prime Minister Robert Fico stated that his governing Smer party would back a joint candidate from the five opposition parties.

The opposition parties seem to have coalesced around SaS MP Kamil Krnáč. If Krnáč is elected he will replace Jan Jasovský (a nominee from the Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS)), who is currently serving several months of extra time in his post following the expiration of his seven-year term in office in February.
