Apart from Jozef Kandera and Ján Hrivnák, a third name - Jozef Szabó - has emerged as a possible coalition candidate for general prosecutor, the TASR newswire learnt from Most-Híd chair Béla Bugár on Wednesday, November 17.

Szabó, a Most-Híd nominee who currently works at the international department of the Office of the General Prosecutor, was also discussed as a candidate before the first attempt to select a new general prosecutor earlier this month. In the end, there was no result after two rounds of voting – the first featuring incumbent general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka, Eva Mišíková and Hrivnák; the second a run-off between Trnka and Mišíková.

SaS chairman Richard Sulík, when approached by TASR, indirectly confirmed that a third name had emerged. Asked whether the Coalition Council at its session on Saturday will decide between two names as joint coalition candidate, he said that “that’s old information”. He declined to provide any details, however.

A new vote to select the next general prosecutor is slated for the parliamentary session set to begin on Tuesday, November 30.
