The Senate has rejected one of President Miloš Zeman’s candidates for the post of Constitutional Court judge, Jiří Nykodým. While serving previously as a Constitutional Court judge, the lawyer played a role in the rejection of a complaint taken against a controversial church restitution bill last year. The president will now have to find a new candidate. Two others were made Constitutional Court judge in a secret vote at the Senate on Thursday: Vojtěch Šimíček and Tomáš Lichovník.
