President Zuzana Čaputová called for patience and cooperation, PM Peter Pellegrini asked what kind of country people want Slovakia to become and Parliament's Speaker Andrej Danko believes the country is at a crossroad of history.

Slovakia's three top constitutional officials - the president, prime minister, and parliament's speaker - all spoke to the nation on the public-service television on the last evening of the election campaign.
