The "Big Three" controversy
On 24 November 2020, a group of opposition MPs found out that all President, Prime Minister and President of the Federal Assembly (the "Big Three") are running for the office of Judges. It sparked a large controversy, and, finally, a public voting for new constitutional amendment was held, about that if they could run in judicial election. The results of the referendum approved that they could run, as less than a half of population participated (5 from 13 citizens). It is possible that this affair will be debated in the Court in future.
T.L. and Imrich Kvajda got into the Supreme Court. K.Č. and M.B. contested for the third seat in the second round, with M.B. winning.
