While 4 percent of the experts surveyed said that they did not have a clear opinion about the issue, none of them said they viewed Gašparovič’s conduct to be correct, according to the survey that was undertaken as part of a research project called ‘Slovak justice through the eyes of the public, experts and judges’.

Among the judges surveyed, 74 percent were critical of the president’s decision not to officially appoint Čentéš while only 6.5 percent approved of the decision.
