Juraj Kliment, Maroš Žilinka, Ján Šanta and Ján Hrivnák. These are the four candidates to be discussed the day before the announced election of the Attorney General to the coalition, scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. Jozef Čentéš, Tomáš Honz and Rastislav Remeta seem out at the moment, although nothing has been agreed yet.
It is also unclear whether the election will take place on Tuesday at all. The Attorney General is elected for seven years, and unlike previous National Council elections, it will be clear shortly after the vote who voted – the elections will be public for the first time.
They meet at Kollar’s
Monday from 5 pm the coalition council will meet again in the home of the president of the National Council and We are the family of Boris Kollár to discuss the candidates for the Attorney General. If no agreement is reached, the election may be postponed again. It’s already shifted once – originally deputies were supposed to elect the attorney general on Thursday. For the government coalition, this will be one of the most important voices in the National Council.
