Ján Čarnogurský, Peter Osuský, Andrej Kiska and Radoslav Procházka debated in front of about 100 students for two hours. It was partially confrontational and partially friendly, answering various students’ questions, but without a clear winner, Sme wrote.

The candidates, for example, discussed the solutions to current problems in the judiciary. Procházka said he would try to find way how to weaken current Supreme Court President Štefan Harabin with the help of the Judicial Council. Čarnogurský said that the judiciary has a candidate whom it in fact generated, while Osuský answered the question with using a quote of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin that “cadres decide everything”, adding that in there is no non-violent solution in Harabin’s case, as reported by Sme.
