Constitutional committee rejects bill amending the Slovak Constitution

The Slovak Parliament's constitutional committee on Monday, September 6, rejected an amendment to Slovakia's Constitution aimed at curbing MP's and judge's immunity, said the chairman of the committee, Radoslav Procházka, from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), as reported by TASR. If the amendment is passed anyway the constitutional committee recommends that parliament pass a bill amending the Criminal Code in the interest of compliance. The amendment is now in second reading having been moved by Parliament on August 11.

Parliament will decide on the fate of both measures on September 7. The constitutional amendment needs to be supported by a constitutional majority or at least 90 lawmakers – meaning it needs support from some members of the opposition to pass into law.
