The Supreme Court will have to continue operating without a president. The Judicial Council failed to elect a new head the second time.
The previous president, Daniela Švecová, left the post in early October.
Two candidates applied for the November 25 election, but neither of them managed to receive the necessary number of votes, the SITA newswire reported.
Judge Ján Šikuta received eight votes in total, lacking only two for election. The second candidate Alena Šišková gained only two votes from the Judicial Council.
The election will repeat on January 27, 2020. Until then, the Supreme Court will be led by its incumbent vice president Jarmila Urbancová.
