The justices involved are Milan Ľalík, Marianna Mochnáčová and Peter Brňák, chairperson of the court, Ivetta Macejková, informed –without specifying the president’s reasons.

“On the same day (November 2), the CC also received as an addendum to the motion an objection of bias files by the Slovak president against members of the first panel,” s press release of the CC reads.

In early September, justices Ján Bernát, Miroslav Duriš, Eva Fulcová and Juraj Sopoliga, approved by parliament as CC justices but refused appointment by Kiska, filed a complaint with the Constitutional Court.

The first panel then accepted the complaint. Another refused candidate, Jana Lašáková, also filed a complaint in September; and her motion was accepted in October by the third CC panel. The plenum of the court then merged both cases through a resolution, for a joint proceeding within the first panel, TASR cited CC information.
