The Judicial Council needed to find a new candidate after the General Court of the European Court’s committee had rejected Slovak candidate Mária Patakyová due to her lack of knowledge of French.

The current representative of Slovakia at the court is Juraj Schwarcz who he has been in the post since 2009.
