Mazák: Parliament has no right to remove me from office

The Chairman of the Judicial Council of the Slovak Republic, Ján Mazák, claims that the National Council of the Slovak Republic has no right to remove him from the position of a member of the Judicial Council of the Slovak Republic.

“I was elected by the Parliament on April 23, 2020, the amendment to the Constitution of the Slovak Republic, which allows the recall of a member of the Judicial Council of the Slovak Republic at any time, became effective on January 1, 2021. The unifying interpretation of the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic applied to me, according to which a member of the Judicial Council of the Slovak Republic cannot be recalled before by the end of the five-year period,” he emphasized.

If the parliament decided to recall him, he would turn to the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic. “If I happen to fail in the domestic environment, although the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court is clear, I will continue,” he added.

The Judicial Council of the Slovak Republic is a constitutional body made up of 18 members, including the chairman and deputy chairman. One member is elected by judges of the Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic and the Supreme Administrative Court of the Slovak Republic. Eight members from the ranks of judges are elected by judges of other courts. The National Council of the Slovak Republic, the President of the Slovak Republic and the Government of the Slovak Republic supply three members each.
