This contribution examines changes to the selection and appointment of judges to the Slovak Constitutional Court. A year before a scheduled replacement of nine judges of the Court in 2019, the government introduced constitutional and legislative reforms of the process. The leitmotif of the proposed reform was an effort to qualitatively improve the appointment process at the point of selection, and increase the sum of available public information about candidates for the position. The government ultimately succeeded in implementing legislative reforms of the selection process but not the constitutional amendment.
