Coalition MPs to vote today for General Prosecutor without joint strategy

The May 17 vote to elect a new General Prosecutor will be by secret ballot and will be held in accordance with the ruling of Slovakia’s Constitutional Court, the parliamentary caucus chairman of Freedom and Solidarity party, Jozef Kollár, told the TASR newswire after a meeting of governing coalition leaders on May 16. The coalition will not apply any mechanisms to control the votes of its MPs, Kollár said. "Lawmakers will vote in line with their conscience and knowledge, including those from SaS caucus," he added.
