Opposition MPs have initiated a special session for Monday, May 10 to remove Mária Kolíková (Za Ľudí) from the post of justice minister following suspicions concerning the business of her family company. Kolíková says that she sees no reason to resign and all coalition parties have declared that they would not support her ousting. Nevertheless, the senior coalition party OĽaNO claims that Kolíková has not cleared up all doubts.
