The conflict between PM Igor Matovič and Economy Minister Richard Sulík has been ongoing for several months.
Most recently, Matovič has said that Sulík is to blame for 4,300 COVID-19 victims as he did not purchase the antigen tests for mass testing. This was later debunked by several experts and commentators as not being entirely fair to Sulík.
Sulík told the media that he does not consider nationwide testing to be a good idea and Matovič accused him of saying the exact opposite during the governmental session the day before. The government published a recording from the session and Sulík apologised for the misunderstanding, claiming that he wanted to test in the regions that were suffering most from the pandemic.
