The new rules for choosing a police boss are being postponed. Today's government (22 August) has withdrawn this law from the Ministry of the Interior. Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini says that there is still a debate about how to do it in the end. But critics say the government is trying to tamper with her husband at the helm of the police.
"The length of the term of the new police president is problematic," said Interior Minister Denisa Sakova, who agreed to withdraw the amendment to the Police Churches Act because there are unclear questions. The proposed seven-year period is "the most resolute question". Let me discuss it. He remembers that this length was also suggested by Tomáš Drucker, who served as Minister only for about a month.
Sakova rejects the claim that the ministry would not have made concessions according to the law. She had dropped her words by the fact that the police president could only be the one who had served with the police for at least fifteen years. "We have shortened to 10 years," Sak said.
The proposed rules for the election of the president of the Police College include the fact that the police president will continue to be appointed Minister for the Interior. However, this can only be done on the basis of a selection procedure and only on the recommendation of the parliamentary security committee.
In order to appoint a police chairman, the selection committee, the Defense and Security Committee and the Minister of the Interior must therefore agree. The changes must also be influenced by the police inspection, which must be determined by the inspection service.
According to the proposal, only a policeman who has been in office for at least ten years is appointed as police president. He would be in office for seven years. The same person could only be appointed once.
The minister has the authority to appeal to the president for serious reasons, but must be approved by at least three-fifths of all members of the national security committee.
