Promotion to the rank of Captain in Reserve

In September 2016, while in his position as the Speaker of the Parliament, Danko was promoted by eight ranks (from OR-4 to O-2), to Captain in Reserve of the Slovak Army, by his friend Peter Gajdoš, the Minister of Defense. The promotion was viewed by some in the media, general and internet public as a sign of corrupt government. This is because a single promotion by eight ranks has never happened in the history of Slovak Army, not at all to a person who has only joined mandatory national service for the period of one year.WEB,weblink Danko: Na hodnosť kapitán som hrdý, zaslúžim si ju, Pravda, 19 January 2017, 22 January 2016, WEB,weblink Internet oslavuje novú hodnosť predsedu SNS vtipnými obrázkami: Kapitán Danko, pozor na ľadovec!, Cas, 19 January 2017, 22 January 2016, WEB,weblink Andreja Danka povýšil minister obrany za SNS na kapitána (+video), Dennik N, 19 January 2017, 22 January 2016,

Plagiarism allegations

In 2018, Danko was accused of plagiarism of his doctoral thesis at University of Matej Bel in 2000. When media showed interest in his thesis, he asked the university to ban public access to it. Following public pressure, Danko removed the ban after one month and the university library allowed the public to see the thesis, but not to take pictures of it.WEB,weblink Denník N: Danko is a plagiarist, 2018-11-15,, The Slovak Spectator, en, 2018-12-15, In November 2018 the university set up a commission to review his thesis.WEB,weblink Dankova rigorózna práca nedáva univerzite spávať

2019 Presidential Inauguration

In 2019, Danko presided ceremonial assembly of the National Council of the Slovak Republic on the occasion of presidential inauguration of Zuzana Čaputová in the Slovak Philharmonic, and delivered an unscheduled speech to address the participants. This caused a breach of a protocol which states that duties of the outgoing president cease at 12.00 GMT+1 and the elect takes office.WEB,weblink Slovenským zastupujúcim prezidentom bol na 7 minút Andrej Danko,,, sk, 2019-06-18, Slovak laws state that in an event of vacant presidential seat, some competences of the president are passed to the Speaker of the National Council and to the Government of the Slovak republicWEB,weblink Prezidentka Slovenskej republiky {{!, Ústava|website=Prezidentka Slovenskej republiky|language=sk|access-date=2019-06-18}}.
