Constitutional Court rules on Supreme Audit Office Appeal

THE CONSTITUTIONAL Court has ruled that Ján Jasovský, MP from the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), should take over the chairmanship of the Supreme Audit Office in the next few days, according to the daily Pravda.

The man he will take over from, Jozef Stahl, had protested the immediate appointment of Jasovský, believing he should keep the post for another two years.

Following the Constitutional Court’s ruling Jozef Stahl said, "I respect the Court's ruling. Maybe, I'll stay on at the NKÚ as an ordinary employee."

Jasovský reacted to the ruling saying, "It was unnecessary. I could have been working in the office for two months already".

Stahl believed he should stay in the post for another two years following an amendment extending the appointment to seven years.
