Slovakia’s Judicial Council will vote for a new Supreme Court vice-president once again as this is on the agenda for the next session of the council to be held on January 17, the SITA newswire reported.

The candidate put forth for the position is Supreme Court judge Igor Burger whose candidacy was scheduled to be decided in August 2011 at the Judicial Council’s meeting in Omšenie. But Burger reportedly injured himself before the session by stepping on a nail and the vote was postponed, according to published information.

The Judicial Council has tried several times to elect a new Supreme Court vice-president, SITA wrote on January 9. The Supreme Court has been without a vice-president since May 30, 2010 when Daniela Švecová's term expired. Before the end of her term she sought the post again but the Judicial Council did not elect her.
