A week ago it still looked like early elections were the most likely option in Slovakia, but PM Robert Fico surprised the nation when he announced on March 15 that he would resign - which he did the day after.

Fico will be replaced in his post by Peter Pellegrini, who served as the deputy PM for informatisation and investment in his cabinet.
