Court to rule in Supreme Court election case

The Consitutional Court is expected to deliver a decision today that will either confirm or reject the controversial reelection of Supreme Court chief justice Stefan Harabin to his post.

President Rudolf Schuster, who has the authority to name judicial officials, said he would "take into account" the verdict of the Constitutional Court, but his spokesman Jan Fule stressed that the president was not necessarily bound to respect that ruling.

Harabin's December 20 reelection to the top job at the Supreme Court was called into doubt when his only rival pointed out that being a member of the electing body, the Judicial Council, Harabin was entitled to cast a ballot in the vote while he himself was not.
