Macejková appointed to Venice Commission

On October 3, the Cabinet appointed the Chairperson of the Constitutional Court, Ivetta Macejková, as Slovakia's representative on the European Commission for Democracy through Law, better known as the Venice Commission.

Macejková will become Slovakia's third representative on the Commission, following Ján Klučka, who currently holds the position of European Court of Justice judge, and former judge and Constitutional Court Chair Jan Mazák, who resigned from the Commission on April 1, 2007. The Venice Commission was established in 1990 as an advisory body of the Council of Europe. TASR
