“The Constitutional Court judges unanimously elected Judge Rajko Knez at the administrative session for the new president of the Constitutional Court, who will take office on December 19, the court said. On December 18, the Constitutional Court president Jadranka Sovdat expired the nine-year term of office of the Constitutional Court.

The newly-elected president of the Constitutional Court, born in 1969, was the umpire of the Constitutional Court in April last year. Prior to his election, he was a full professor at the Faculty of Law in Maribor, a member of the interstate court in The Hague and an arbitrator of permanent arbitration at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia.” (translated from Sio1)
