New Constitutional Court judges, like their predecessors, do not seem to want to respect the law, as they oppose the introduction of a computerized system for random case assignment. However, new Constitutional Court president Ivetta Macejková said the current practice of assigning cases randomly in the presence of all judges is already transparent enough.
Nonetheless, a computerized system for case assignment is required by
law. The head of the parliamentary constitutional and judicial committee, Mojmír Mamojka, said that the Constitutional Court must observe the letter of the law also.
