IN SHORT

Constitutional Court rejects Stahl appeal

THE CONSTITUTIONAL Court ruled that Ján Jasovský should take over the chairmanship of the Supreme Audit Office immediately, according to the daily Pravda.

The man he is replacing, Jozef Stahl, believed he had the right to stay in the post for another two years and had appealed against Jasovský's appointment.

Stahl's argument was based on a change to the constitution that extends the appointment of top NKÚ officials from five to seven years.

The court ruled, however, that because Stahl had originally been appointed for five years, he was not entitled to the extra two.

In reaction to the court's ruling Stahl said, "I respect the verdict. Maybe I'll stay on at the NKÚ as an ordinary employee."

Jasovský commented, "It was unnecessary. I could have been working in the office for two months already."
