Parliamentary Chairman Andrej Danko has announced that the presidential election will be held on 16th March. The second round of this election has been set for 30th March. So far, 16 candidates have announced they will be running for the post. Danko told TASR in December that if the party leadership chooses him to run for the post, he will join the battle for the Presidential Palace. On Wednesday, the largest coalition member SMER-SD suggested Euro Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič as its candidate for the post. Šefčovič has not yet announced if he will accepts the offer.
