Attorney General vote set for the New Year
After all the friction and debate surrounding the failed attempts to vote in a coalition-backed Attorney General, the coalition agreed yesterday that the vote would take place next year, which could mean the country will have a hole in this key office from February.
This goes against the calls of the opposition and coalition party Most-Hid, which were hoping the vote could take place before Christmas. Prime Minister Iveta Radicova said the deadlock to date would be discussed on a parliamentary level, while adding that the four coalition partiers still backed their original candidate Jozef Centes for the post of Attorney General.
Now a working group will deal with the task of analysing how the vote should be laid down by law, and will also look at restricting the AG jurisdiction in certain areas.
