The four parties that will form the future government are believed to have reached an agreement over the division of ministries and who will chair them on March 10.

“We are nearly at the end,” said OĽaNO chair Igor Matovič, who is to form a government, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Matovič’s four-leaf clover must first set the boundaries of how education and health care are to be reformed, he said.

“It is now crucial for each ministry to get its patron, who will be assigned to prepare a part of the government’s manifesto for a given ministry,” Matovič said, as reported by the SITA newswire.
