The four governing parties (the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Most-Híd) did not reach agreement on a joint candidate for the post of general prosecutor, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová (SDKÚ) announced after a Coalition Council session on Tuesday, November 2.
The 51 MPs representing SaS, KDH and Most-Híd are therefore expected to vote for Eva Mišíková in parliament on Wednesday, while the SDKÚ’s 28 MPs are expected to back Ján Hrivnák. Meanwhile, the largest party in parliament, Smer, is expected to back the current general prosecutor, Dobroslav Trnka, the TASR newswire wrote. Given this distribution of votes, none of the three candidates is expected to be elected in the first round.
