Žitňanská has become the new chair of the council, replacing former justice minister Tomáš Borec. Justice Ministry State Secretary Monika Jankovská (a Smer nominee) remains vice-chair of the council, while Štefan Grman will continue to serve as the body’s secretary, the TASR newswire wrote.

University lecturers from the Pan-European University in Bratislava, Andrea Vitkóová and Rastislav Kaššák, and lawyers Marek Kaľavský and Tomáš Stoklasa, will also be among the new members. A total of eight members of the council remain in their positions.

The new council members are experts in theory as well as in practice, according to Žitňanská. They meet both the professional and personal criteria. The minister expects them to help to improve the quality of the legal system in Slovakia.
