In the era of former prime minister Iveta Radičová, the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party wanted to see him in the top post of the National Security Office, NBÚ. Paluda's rival in the race will this time around be Judge Jarmila Urbancová. The second most important post at the Supreme Court has been vacant since May 2010.
