Supreme Court judge and failed presidential candidate Štefan Harabin will run for the post of Supreme Court president in September. He confirmed his plan to the TASR newswire.
“The motive of my candidacy is the ongoing mafianisation of the Supreme Court,” he said, as quoted by TASR. “The posts of judges are filled based on orders from political mafiosi.”
Harabin has already served as the president of the Supreme Court. He was elected to the post by the Judicial Council in 2009.
The election will take place on September 9. The tenure of incumbent Supreme Court President Daniela Švecová ends in October.
