Judicial Council election date set

SUPREME Court Chief Justice Štefan Harabin has set the date for elections of eight judicial members of the self-governing Judicial Council for June 28, 2002.

The council, an 18-member body including three candidates elected each by parliament, cabinet and the president, will have exclusive authority over personnel matters in the Slovak judiciary, thus increasing its independence.

Slovakia's 1,200 judges will cast their votes at eight regional courts.

According to the Judicial Council Law, the Supreme Court Chief Justice automatically becomes head of the council.
