President Petr Pavel proposed to the Senate two more candidates for constitutional judges. They are lawyer Lucia Dolanská Bányaiová and judge Zdeňko Kühn of the Supreme Administrative Court.
One of the 15 seats at the Constitutional Court is now vacant, after Pavel’s previous nominee, Supreme Court judge Pavel Simon, failed to pass the Senate last week. Radovan Suchánek’s mandate will end in exactly one month.
Dolanská Bányaiová focuses her practice mainly on representing clients in court and arbitration proceedings, on competition law, international private law and European law.
Kühn is a professor at the Department of Legal Theory and Legal Studies, Faculty of Law, Charles University. He has been a judge of the Supreme Administrative Court for about 15 years. In the past, he was also nominated by the government for the position of ad hoc judge at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
