In June Slovak MPs will come to the parliament sooner than originally planned to hold a special session to select the country’s general prosecutor, Speaker of Parliament Richard Sulík told the TASR newswire on June 6.
The regular June session was scheduled to begin on June 28 but the vote on the general prosecutor is scheduled to start on June 17. The vote is expected to be an open, recorded ballot and not secret as previously.
Sulík also confirmed that Jozef Čentéš is the only coalition candidate at this time.
The vote procedure may still be modified by the Constitutional Court as there is a complaint submitted by acting General Prosecutor Ladislav Tichý before the court and it may issue a provisional ruling that the recorded vote cannot be held before it rules on the merits of the complaint.
