57-year-old Andrej Kiska, President of Slovakia in the years 2014-2019, June 28, wrote in Facebook that he was leaving politics.
According to him, it is related to health status: 29 June, he will do the surgery on the heart.
“I pay tribute to his body of hundreds of thousands of miles that I drove the car across the country for the last time. Less than a year this is the second operation that I have to go through, and the third in five years. My health allows you to remain active in politics. Last year the operated heart often beating hard for no reason, I was able to calm the heartbeat with medicines. Arrhythmia sometimes can’t fix, even surgery,” he told Kitty.
He said members of his party “For the people” that won’t nominate his candidacy in the presidential elections of the political forces, scheduled for 8 August.
