At the recent ceremonies commemorating Slovakia's Constitution Day, Slovakia's President, Andrej Kiska, made remarks which strongly re-assert September 1st as a founding date, and therefore seems to rule-out the cancellation of that annual non-working public holiday in Slovakia, as had been proposed in the past.

A few years ago (2011-09-04), the Chairman and Speaker of Slovakia's Parliament, Richard Sulik, had stated that the annual, September 1st, Constitution Day non-working public holiday was superfluous and should be canceled, or at least made into a regular working day. Speaker Sulik argued then that Slovakia already celebrates its independence with an annual non-working public holiday on January 1st and that the September 1st Constitution Day non-working public holiday is not "the most important holiday".
