New Constitutional Court president presents her priorities

At a press conference on March 7, Ivetta Macejková, the new president of the Constitutional Court, gave an overview of the cases that the court will give the highest priority to in the near future.

She said that the court will first deal with motions that were filed quite a few years ago, citing as an example the law regulating abortions, which is the court's oldest contested case, filed in 2001. She expects the court to issue a verdict on this case by the end of the year. The court reporter in this case, Justice Lajos Mészáros, said that similar courts in other countries also took five or six years to deliver a verdict on this sensitive issue. Constitutional Court seminars were held on this topic and 14 experts' analyses have been considered.
