Description In this chapter, we examine two leaders who are inherently tied to the political development of Slovakia during 1998-2019 – Mikuláš Dzurinda and Robert Fico. They both represent relevant political leaders who led their parties during periods in which they served as Prime Ministers as well as when they were in the opposition. At the same time, the length of their leadership offers enough variance to better understand the influence of their personality traits on political development in Slovakia. The central argument presented here is that both Robert Fico and Mikuláš Dzurinda had a strong need for power that led them to disregard political agreements and bypass leadership bodies in their previous parties to satisfy their greatest political ambitions.
