PM Says Vote Prompted by Undermined Consensus on EU Presidency

Ljubljana, 19 November - Prime Minister Janez Jansa has told the National Assembly that he sought a vote of confidence in the parliament because of the "broken fundamental consensus on Slovenia's upcoming stint as EU president". He said the government was being impeded in tasks related to the presidency, while Slovenia's image was being tarnished from within. As a prime example of this he pointed to the petition signed by 571 journalists against government interference in the media.
