More and more MEPs of the major ruling party Smer want to replace the incumbent party leader Robert Fico. In fact, others are joining Smer MEP Monika Smolková, who would consider PM Peter Pellegrini (Smer) a perfect party leader.
Nevertheless, the prime minister is not the type to challenge Fico and go head-to-head in an open fight, Smer MPs sitting in the parliament suggested.
However, MEP Monika Beňová, who is running for re-election in this May's European Parliament elections as the first name on Smer's list of candidates, claimed there are ongoing talks within the party to change its election leader prior to the 2020 parliamentary elections.
