In reaction to Tuesday's protest march against corruption, the Slovak president Andrej Kiska told reporters that as long as people remain silent in Slovakia, things will not move forward. "I appreciate and I urge people to be active, to express their opinions in a decent form on problems that plague all of us," said Kiska. "I want to assure all citizens that the government sees corruption in society as a serious long-term problem and that it is taking concrete steps to suppress and eliminate this phenomenon", reads the stance of Prime Minister Robert Fico. Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská is happy to see the interest of young people in public affairs and that they expressed their opinions in a manner that does not deny the democratic character of the country. "The Government should support people's freedom to express their opinions, listen to them and attempt to use what it learns in the next general election in 2020" stated Culture Minister Marek Maďarič.
