In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Slovak Prime Minister Igor Matovič said he has no desire to run the for the office he finds himself currently in.
“I did not want to win the elections. I only wanted it to be the same as the last 10 years, but then this happened,” Matovič said during a discussion organised by Dennik N.
Matovič’s centre-right party OĽaNO won this spring’s general elections with a surprising majority, catapulting the long-time opposition politician known for this stunts in parliament into the role of prime minister during a pandemic.
“I have no desire to be a prime minister again. I just want to bring Slovakia out of this shitstorm we find ourselves in,” he added. (Zuzana Gabrižová | EURACTIV.sk)
