The freshly sworn-in MPs elected the top posts in the parliament and its committees at their very first session, which took place under unusual hygienic measures due to the coronavirus.
After all the MPs shook the gloved hand of Andrej Danko, an act required by the Constitution to complete their oath, they proceeded to elect the parliament's speaker, his deputies and the chairs of the parliamentary committees.
As per the agreement among the parties of the new ruling coalitoin, leader of Sme Rodina Boris Kollar was elected to replace Andrej Danko as parliament's speaker. Danko will no longer serve in the parliament; his party did not reach the necessary 5 percent of the vote in the February 29 election to enter the parliament.
