Bratislava, June 12 (TASR) - Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) on Wednesday declined to answer when asked whether he's discussed his future in the party with head of Smer-SD Robert Fico.
"He's visiting the regions at the moment, meeting representatives, and I'm keeping myself busy with managing this country," said Pellegrini when asked about Fico.
Deputy Prime Minister Richard Rasi (Smer-SD) has said that so far there hasn't been any discussion within Smer on a possible change in the post of party leader. When quizzed as to whether it won't be too late to replace the chairman after the 2020 general election, Rasi replied that such are the party's statutes. Regarding Pellegrini, Rasi said that he hopes he won't leave the party. "He's an exceptionally successful and popular politician at the moment," he stated.
