The central European nation has been swept by massive protests since the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak who was behind the report unveiling the links between Slovakian lawmakers and organized crime groups.
Axar.az reports citing sputniknews.com.
Slovak Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Robert Kalinak resigned on Monday in the wake of the mass demonstrations triggered by the killing of Ján Kuciak and his fiancee.
"I think to fulfil my mandate I have to do everything to preserve stability in Slovakia," Kalinak said. "For this reason I have decided to resign as deputy prime minister and interior minister."
The news of gun killings of Kuciak and his fiancee, Martina Kušnírová, who were found dead in their house in late February, has shaken Slovakia. About 50,000 people rallied in Bratislava last Friday, calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Robert Fico and his cabinet.
