The National Council of Prosecutors recommended that Prosecutor General Milan Hanzel deny the application of Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) renegade Miroslav Abelovský, who wants to join the general prosecution.
Abelovský hopes to become a member of the general prosecution in order to qualify for running for the post of prosecutor general.
The Ľudová Únia (ĽÚ) member had hoped for the support of the opposition and even the ruling coalition.
Abelovský said that if the council of prosecutors does not recommend his admittance to the general prosecution, he will remain a deputy.
The term of office of the current Attorney General, Milan Hanzel, ends in January 2004.
