16:21 Veronika Remišová of the OĽaNO movement added that FIC's calls to the Most-Hid party on how to vote in the constitutional judges were unacceptable.

15:55 Members of the LSNS do not take part in the vote on constitutional judges and withdraw the nomination of their candidate Radovan Hrádek in the position of constitutional judge. Marian Kotleba said that the deputies of their parliamentary club did not want to participate in the "farce", which became the choice of constitutional judges. At the same time, he announced that the current president, Andrej Kiska, has no moral right to appoint new constitutional judges at the end of the term. "And therefore, in this situation, we put our hands away from this and we will not participate in this farce," Kotleba added.

15:45 Robert Fico announced in the press service today that he is withdrawing the candidacy for the constitutional judge. He was involved with President Andrej Kisk, the media and the coalition party Most-Hid. If, according to Fica, opposition candidates pass with Mosta support, there will be an unprecedented violation of coalition regulations. "It should seriously damage the functioning of the ruling coalition," he said.

The game is again premature

It is not excluded that the choice is two-wheeled. But before we decide whether the election will be secret or public. Members of Parliament with the most Hide do not vote for a secret election. Andrej Danko, President of the Parliament, also said that the elections in the first round are clearly public. However, the direction will require a secret choice. They do not want candidates to be elected during a public election. According to our information, this can cause a new crisis in the coalition. That is why Robert Fico announced today that he is giving up his candidacy. According to him, he wanted to be the president of the ÚS and the constitutional judges had to choose a new president.

Early elections could also return to the game. These should push the direction of the government if both CIS and Most demand the party and select the candidates in public choice in the first round. But now it seems that the first round will be public. Danko also admitted the possible second round, which appears to have been secretly Thursday. The first round will be held today on the 17th, it is not excluded that it will last until the evening hours.

De Brug was irritated by the negotiations about the Order with the Kotlebovci

The fact that the MPs of Mosta-Hid have also opted for a public election has a simple explanation. Yesterday the information was published that the members of the Chamber of Representatives negotiated with Marián Kotleb of the LSNS. The MPs of the smaller coalition party were angry. "The media read information about the Smer-SD talks with LSNS delegates about supporting their candidates for constitutional judges, which was confirmed by Kotleb & # 39; s MP Milan Uhrík, she said in a statement for her spokeswoman Klara Debnar.

"The Most-Hid Party is very fond of the various tactical games in the background that are played between some parties, and we declare that Most-Hide MPs are not even involved in these games, to prevent further spread of crimes and speculation about exclude behind-the-scenes agreements with LSNS, members of the European Parliament vote for the public election of candidates in the plenary of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, " wrote Debnar and said that Most would do his utmost to select 18 candidates. "Members have a recommendation and a free hand in the election," she added.

Fica does not support it

The coalition still has no agreement on the election of candidates for constitutional judges. He should go again during the day. Bugar does not even advise his MPs to support Robert Fico. "As I have said several times, I do not advocate for the support of the candidate Robert Fico to the MPs of Most-Hid, and we will make a final decision on which of the candidates we will support at a club meeting on Tuesday," Bugar said. The same opinion was held after today's meeting of the parliamentary club. "Yesterday, even a week ago, we said no," insists on his president Mosta Béla Bugár.

The CIS has no instructions to vote

Robert Fico did not respond to questions from journalists. Eva Smolik of the SNS has confirmed that the coalition council will still be sitting. Asked whether the CIS will support Fico's voice, she said they had no instructions. "The president said we would have a free hand," she repeated. Nationals prefer a system of public choice, as President Andrej Danko himself said. "I publicly state that I do not care who will be with the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic, the only condition is expertise, so that CIS members have a free hand, and I have also made a bid for public choice." the head of the CIS delegates heard the press conference on Tuesday.

The disintegration of coalition relations can bring the position of the strongest party into the situation. Instead, she opposed the possibility of choosing public-law judges with a reticent attitude. "We see the change of public choice as a return before 1989. The constitutional judge must be independent and therefore do not know who has chosen him" the government direction spokesperson, Jan Mažgút, said.

Secret versus public choice

Bugar added after the meeting of the parliamentary party Mosta that his party wants a public election, so that it is not connected to the LSNS vote. "Smer-SD may want a secret choice, but I do not want to be associated with LSNS." With LSNS not negotiating or voting, we want a normal public choice, " said Bugar after the meeting of the Mosta-Hide deputies.

"Typical public maps and voting options are not possible in this case, the law recognizes a public choice in the election of candidates for constitutional judges, which means that each member receives a ticket with 39 names." After the elections you will see whether the elections publicly, for which I am also prepared to vote for who has chosen the candidate for the Constitutional Court, " Danko added in the interest of a hypothetical public election.

The opposition also opts for public choice

The opposition already has an agreement about the candidates, confirmed by the leader Ogor Igor Matovič. "We are trying to find catches," he said that OLAF has negotiated with the SaS and the non-bounds around Miroslav Beblavý and has an agreement on different currencies. We have not reorganized the family. "We have a very special family that behaves in an effort to change the rules in the election of constitutional judges, so we were careful," explained Matovic. Leader OĽANO thinks that in public elections there will be no courage to support Fico.

Liberals have been profiling themselves since the beginning of the process in the interest of public choice. "An integral part of the exercise of such a representative function is the possibility for those who have had their say to the National Council of Slovakia to have the opportunity to examine how such a function (representation of the people) was exercised. This is essential to make the execution of such a function verifiable by the people, " TopSky spokesman SaS Robert Buček said. He also added that he agreed in advance in the SaS parliamentary club on the agreement on the candidates, which citizens could verify in the event of a public election.

Kollars party We are a family that builds a public party for the election of constitutional judges. "MEPs are in favor of a public vote in the election of candidates for constitutional judges," she said for Topky's side. Despite the fact that they have concluded an agreement about the candidates, they did not want to comment yet. "We have an agreement whose candidates will support our movement after the election, but we will not publish it before the vote," closed in the advice.

Eštebák Kresák?

In addition to Fica, he has problems with other candidates. It's about Peter Kresak. Igor Matovich accused him of knowing that he conscientiously worked with StB. Kresak rejects these allegations. He said that he was an ideological employee, but that he never knowingly cooperated. Matovic says, however, that he has not shown all documents and that they are guilty of deception. Bugar, however, said that it was a claim against the claim and it is about who to trust. However, Lavin's attack was set in motion after Kresak's communist party and cooperation with the StB even asked during the hearing CIS delegate Tibor Bernajak.

According to Kisk, the public choice of judges is the right choice

Given the information that accompanies the selection process of the Judges of the Slovak Constitutional Court and the various background discussions that take place in this context, the public choice of judges of the Constitutional Court is the right choice. President Andrej Kiska said. He responded to Monday's statements by leaders of the coalition parties Most-Hid and the CIS, who supported the public election of jury judges.

He repeated that he had a single question, a single expectation from legislators. "To choose 18 prestigious candidates in Parliament who will be professionally competent and morally good," said Kiska, ready to choose from this group and to appoint nine new constitutional judges.

Nuclear mood

Delegates from the National Council of the SR at 17.00 will choose candidates for constitutional judges. They will do so after the debate they discussed during the parliamentary talks on Thursday and Friday. Voting for candidates for constitutional judges will probably be public, with the public not only opposition parties, but also coalition Most-Hide and SNS. Constitutional judges have also been elected in parliament by President Andrej Kiska. According to the president, 39 candidates have sufficiently high and honorable experts.

The plenary debate on the nomination for candidates for constitutional judges was mainly for one of 39 candidates. He was the deputy of the National Council and Deputy Prime Minister Robert Fico. On February 7, he also met the constitutional parliamentary committee, which decided that the exterior met the legal conditions for the execution of a judge of the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic. The committee voted in a ratio of seven to six in favor of Fic's candidature. The fact that Fico also meets the legal requirements and has the required practice, decided Irén Sárköz (Most-Híd). Sarkozy argued that he only voted for what he had for him. The deputy for SaS Ondrej Dostál argues that Fico does not meet the conditions.

The Parliament would have to choose 18 candidates for constitutional judges from among the 39 candidates, half of whom would be appointed by the chairman. According to current rules, the candidate for the position of a judge of the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic must have an absolute majority of the votes of the delegates present, but at least 39. The nine-judge judge of the Constitutional Court of SR will expire on February 16th.
