Slovakia has a new prime minister. Igor Matovič and his cabinet of ministers took over from Peter Pellegrini amid the biggest public health crisis Slovakia and the world has ever seen.
"The times and the situation are so serious that we cannot afford to have any other government than one that honours the constitution," President Zuzana Čaputová told the ministers after they were appointed. She told them to be wise and unifying.
She called on the government and the whole country to act as a coherent and compassionate community.
"We must lead the country through this difficult time," she said.
