Vote on New Central Bank Governor Uncertain

Ljubljana, 22 January - Mitja Gaspari looked set to win a second term at the helm of Banka Slovenije, the central bank, but allegations by a small opposition party have cast doubt on the confirmation. The National Party (SNS) claims the central bank had sent to the EU documents that paint a negative picture of the economy. Gaspari has denied the claims, but this has nevertheless prompted several parties to put their backing on hold.
