Krajniak's resignation comes after the representatives of another two coalition parties, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) and Za Ľudí, called on PM Igor Matovič of OĽaNO to resign from his post, or otherwise they would leave the coalition.
Speaker of Parliament and Sme Rodina chair Boris Kollár reiterated that their party does not have any demands for reshuffles in the cabinet. The party presented five conditions last Wednesday (March 10), focused on helping people and businesses hit by the pandemic.
