Hudák is second official candidate for head of Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice and former state secretary of the Justice Ministry Daniel Hudák is another candidate for the top post at the Supreme Court (SC).

Supreme Court Justice and former state secretary of the Justice Ministry Daniel Hudák is another candidate for the top post at the Supreme Court (SC).

Hudák is the second candidate for this post, after Daniela Švecová. Hudák was proposed by justices of the SC, the office of the Judicial Council confirmed for the SITA newswire.

Daniela Švecová was the first candidate nominated to run for the post of Supreme Court’s chairperson, proposed by the Trnava Regional Court. Švecová was a vice-chair of the Supreme Court and currently is the chair of one of the panels of its civil-rights college.

The head of the SC will be elected on the very last possible day, September 16, and the location was recently changed from the municipality of Spišské Hanušovce in the east of Slovakia to the Slovak capital. The date was set by former head of the Judicial Council Štefan Harabin shortly before his term expired, while the location proposed by him, Spišské Hanušovce, was changed by the newly-elected vice-head of the Judicial Council Ján Vanko.

The previous attempt to elect a new SC head on May 19 was unsuccessful, as none of the three candidates – outgoing chair Štefan Harabin, Jana Bajánková and Zuzana Ďurišová – received enough votes. None of them can compete in this round, though if nobody is elected on September 16, they can run again in a third round of balloting. The Supreme Court is now temporarily led by its vice-chair Jarmila Urbancová.

On September 16, the SC head will be elected for the first time separately from the position of Judicial Council’s head, as on September 1, these two positions will be separated due to an amendment to the Constitution, SITA wrote.
