The "Big Three" controversy
On 24 November 2020, a group of opposition MPs found out that all the three highest state officials (President, Prime Minister and President of the Federal Assembly, or 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).
T.L. and Imrich Kvajda were elected into the Supreme Court in the first round. K.Č. and M.B. contested for the third seat in the second round, with M.B. winning.
