The opposition Smer-SD awaits the Diet on Thursday, November 17. The topic is supposed to be the pre-election year 2023. The chairman of Smer-SD Robert Fico told TASR that he has the ambition to lead the party to the parliamentary elections.

According to him, the issue of the electoral leader is thus resolved.

“I can say this clearly. If I decided to become the chairman of the Smer-SD party again after the unfortunate betrayals we faced in the party, I of course have the same ambition to be the party’s electoral leader. This is probably a settled question for us,” he said Fico for TASR.

According to Fico, Smer-SD do not expect elections to party bodies in the Diet. He considers it to be staff-stabilized. “I will define the behavior of Smeru-SD in the pre-election year,” he explained the program to the parliament. On it, he wants to outline the lines of pre-election behavior, but also what the party’s election program will look like. He considers it very important. He added that 2023 could also be an election year, he believes in early elections.


The assembly is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. in the Bratislava Castle’s Winter Riding School, and is expected to end at 1:00 p.m. Subsequently, party representatives also plan to lay wreaths at the monument to Alexander Dubček in front of the National Council of the Slovak Republic.
