Students want PM Igor Matovič to keep his promise from last September and forswear his Master’s degree now that the amended law makes it possible.
In its call on the prime minister, the Student Council for Higher Education (ŠRVŠ) alludes to the promise he made after the media broke the news that he had plagiarised his Master’s thesis.
Prime Minister Matovič (OĽaNO) then admitted that he was in the wrong. At the time, he said: “I don’t have any problems with having to relinquish my title [...] I will do it the moment it is legally possible…” He has since also entertained the idea of re-writing his Master’s thesis.
