The centre-right governing coalition parties the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), Most-Híd and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), have still not picked a joint candidate for the post of general prosecutor, journalists were told by KDH caucus leader Pavol Hrušovský following a Coalition Council session late on Tuesday, October 19. Hrušovský was given the job of leading coalition talks to identify a candidate.

According to Hrušovský, only KDH and Most-Híd submitted proposals, with SDKÚ and SaS still uncommitted. However, SDKÚ MP Stanislav Janiš introduced his own candidate, the incumbent general prosecutor, Dobroslav Trnka. Hrušovský told the TASR newswire that the Coalition Council session is set to continue today (October 20), the deadline for submitting nominations. Trnka's current term will expire by January 31, 2011; the first round of the voting to fill the post is due to take place in parliament on November 3.
