Abstract. This article examines changes to the selection and appointment of judges to the Slovak Constitutional Court. One year before a scheduled replacement of nine judges of the Court in 2019, the Slovak government introduced constitutional and legislative reforms of the appointment process. The leitmotif of the proposed reform was an effort to qualitatively improve the appointment process at the point of selection, as well as to increase the amount of publicly available information about candidates. Ultimately, the Slovak government only succeeded in implementing legislative reforms of the selection process, while the constitutional amendment did not receive parliamentary approval.

Keywords: judicial appointment, constitutional court, eligibility requirements, court composition, selection hearings
