Slovak MPs fail to select disciplinary judges in a secret vote

In a secret vote on October 20, Slovak lawmakers failed to approve a single candidate for the position of Disciplinary Court judge, the SITA newswire wrote. There are 21 candidates from which 12 are to be selected by the Slovak parliament. All 21 candidates are automatically passed through to a second vote which will be held soon, parliament’s Vice-Chair Pavol Hrušovský (KDH) told journalists. The 12 successful candidates will then be forwarded to the Judicial Council along with 12 names proposed by the councils of judges and 12 proposed by Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská (SDKÚ).

The Judicial Council will then decide on only six of the 36 to fill the roles of disciplinary judges. Those chosen will take posts that will become vacant this month after the three-year mandates of the six current judges expire.
