Changes on the way at Supreme Court

Deputy Chief Justice Juraj Majchrak plans to implement a computer-driven system of distributing the judicial agenda in the Supreme Court while he is temporarily in charge of the body pending a controversial decision over chief-justice elections.

Former Chief Justice Štefan Harabin resisted the introduction of the system to the top court. Harabin's reelection in December last year has been thrown in doubt, after his only rival for the post claimed the election conditions were unfair.

Until the Constitutional Court delivers a verdict on that matter, Majchrak will act as head.
