Sulík told the SITA newswire that his decision was not intended to undercut a motion filed at the Constitutional Court that questions the recorded-vote method now being used to select the general prosecutor in place of the previous, secret ballot of MPs used previously. If he intended to do so, the cote could have been held on Tuesday, May 31, Sulík added.
