transl. title: All candidates for constitutional judges: politicians, managers, Harabian's people, and his critics

A newspaper article about 40 nominees for the office a judge of the Slovak Constitutional Court. Helped journalists with data analysis and background check.

Nine judges of the Slovak Constitutional Court will finish their term in mid-February, 2019. The schedule to find their replacements is narrow. 40 nominations were made to the National Council by January 7. Minister of Justice Gábor Gál invited media, academics, and the public to scrutinise the candidates.

Members of Parliament must choose twice the number of candidates for each vacancy, in this case, a total of 18 selections. President Andrej Kiska must then pick nine judges based on their merit and high moral character to start working on February 18th.
