Slovak PM Robert Fico offers to quit after reporter Jan Kuciak's murder

"If the president agrees with it, I am ready to file a resignation letter tomorrow", Fico added.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said Wednesday that he was ready to resign in the wake of the murder of a journalist and his fiancee, provided that no early polls are called.

Jan Kuciak was investigating government corruption when he was killed.

Tens of thousands Slovak rallied last week to demand the government's resignation.

The prime minister's three-party coalition government was facing a no-confidence vote by lawmakers scheduled for next Monday.

Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kalinak resigned two days ago. If the authority does not approve the early elections, the party will exit the coalition.

Slovakia's President Andrej Kiska called for a "radical reconstruction" of the government or fresh elections last week, after all seven suspects arrested in connection with the murders were released without charge.

Mr Fico said he was ready to present a candidate for PM from his party.

Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova, both 27, were found shot dead on February 25 at their home near the capital Bratislava.

Police have interviewed more than 100 people as part of the investigation into the deaths, but no one has yet been charged. Their murders sent shockwaves across the country and the EU. "We don't trust them to guarantee an independent investigation".
