Govt Wins Vote of Confidence, PM Left With Mixed Feelings

Ljubljana, 20 November - The government has won the vote of confidence called by PM Janez Jansa with 51 votes for and 33 votes against. The vote was split along party lines, with the coalition voting entirely for and the opposition mostly against. The vote has left Jansa with mixed feelings, since he believes that the "unhelpful attitude" of the opposition means that the agreement on cooperation in EU presidency matters is "dead ink on paper".
