Deadline for selection of European Court of Human Rights judge extended

The Judicial Council will extend the deadline for submitting applications for the Slovak post of European Court for Human Rights judge, the TASR newswire reported citing the Judicial Council press department. Only a single candidate has applied to date, even though Slovakia is obligated to provide three names to the Council of Europe. The law doesn’t contain any provision to determine the next course of action in such a situation. Back in January, lawyer Ján Drgonec, prosecutor Marek Tomašovič and Slovak representative at the European Court for Human Rights Marica Pirošíková were nominated by Slovakia, but none of them passed the selection process at the Council of Europe, and so the process needed to be restarted, TASR wrote on September 24. Two judges - Juraj Babjak and Alena Poláčková - were nominated in the current selection process. Poláčková later chose to withdraw her candidacy.
