Given the number of judges who recommended each candidate, it can be said who may have the highest chances to succeed, TASR wrote.
Jana Bajánková, who led the Judicial Council and now works at the Supreme Court as a judge, was proposed by 15 Supreme Court judges and by courts in a few other Slovak towns.
Former Constitutional Court president Ivetta Macejková was recommended by 26 Supreme Court judges.
On the other hand, only one Supreme Court judge recommended ex-Supreme Court president Štefan Harabin for the post. Also Soňa Mesiarkinová was proposed by only one member of the Judicial Council, TASR reported.
