THE JUDICIAL Council will hold a vote on its new deputy chair at a session scheduled for July 21, the TASR newswire reported.

Apart from the vice-chair vote, the members of the Judicial Council will discuss alterations to the body's rules of procedure. These changes are associated with recent developments within the Council, which has found itself without anyone to manage its agenda, lacking both a chair and deputy.

The term of former Judicial Council chair (who also serves as the head of the Supreme Court) Štefan Harabin expired on June 22. In May, the members of the Council failed to select a new chair for the two bodies, with another vote set to be held on September 16.

Furthermore, following the recent personnel changes in the Council sponsored by President Andrej Kiska, the body has been left even without a deputy chair. Kiska decided to replace three members of the Council, including former vice-chair Mária Bujňáková.
