The name of Slovakia's next general prosecutor is still unknown, even after a second, run-off vote in parliament on Thursday, November 4. Neither of the remaining two candidates, Dobroslav Trnka and Eva Mišíková, managed to gain the support of a simple majority of the MPs present, the TASR newswire wrote.

In a secret ballot, Trnka received 68 votes while Mišíková gained the support of 47 MPs. A total of 144 MPs took part in the ballot, meaning that for a candidate to succeed he or she had to win the support of at least 73 MPs. Of the MPs present, 29 did not vote for either candidate. A new vote is expected to take place during the December session of parliament.
