Govt nominates Petrovič for European Court of Auditors again

Daily news

Ljubljana - Jorg Kristijan Petrovič, first deputy president of the Slovenian Court of Audit, has been put forward as Slovenia's candidate for European Court of Auditors once again, after the parliamentary EU Affairs Committee turned down his nomination without debate in mid-October.

The government said yesterday it had to notify the National Assembly of the proposal but was "not bound by the opinion of the National Assembly's working body".

Petrovič, first deputy at the Slovenian Court of Audit since 2013, was picked as the best of the four candidates who responded to a call for applications in June.

The European Court of Auditors has 27 members, one from each EU country, who are appointed unanimously by the Council of the European Union after consultations with the European Parliament.

Slovenia's current member of the court is Samo Jereb, whose term ends on 6 May 2022.
