Mazák was nominated by Judicial Council member Ján Klučka, while Šváby is a nominee of Justice Minister Tomáš Borec.

The ECJ is one of the basic institutions of the European Union. It is composed of 27 judges, with every member state being represented by one judge. The judges are then helped by nine general advocates. They are appointed based on agreements of the governments of EU member states for six years. The court is chaired by the judge elected by the Court of Justice for three years, TASR wrote.
