Harabin, whose term of office ends on 23 June, could be in the running for the post, with the appointment being decided on by the Judicial Council, which itself should have a new composition by then.

At present, nominations are being made for appointments to the Judicial Council, and should be in effect by the time the vote on the chairman of both institutions takes place and before President-elect Andrej Kiska can influence the process.
