Supreme Court fails to elect new head

Members of the Supreme Court Council once again failed to elect a new head when they met on Wednesday this week.

None of the three candidates, Milan Karabin, former head Štefán Harabin, or acting head Jozef Majchrák, managed to get enough votes to secure the post over two rounds of voting.

A further vote will be held in 45 days, but according to the council rules none of the candidates will be eligible to stand in that round. If that vote is also unsuccessful, the current candidates could stand again in the next round of voting.
