The application of Jozef Čentéš as the ruling coalition's candidate for the post of general prosecutor was submitted to parliament at 13:00 on Friday, June 10, the TASR newswire was told by Beata Skyvová, the head of parliament's communications department head.

Friday evening at 20:00 was the deadline for names to be submitted to parliament.

Opposition Smer party has again nominated Dobroslav Trnka for re-election as general prosecutor, said party leader Robert Fico, confirming that his application was submitted to parliament's office earlier in the day.

The vote on new general prosecutor will take place at a special parliamentary session scheduled for June 17. It is set to be an open, recorded vote, even though the Constitutional Court has yet to make a ruling on the constitutionality of that challenged procedure, TASR wrote.
