Coalition Talks with DeSUS Postponed

Ljubljana, 16 October - The coalition talks between the Social Democrats (SD) and the Pensioners' Party (DeSUS) were suspended on Thursday after SocDem leader Borut Pahor rejected DeSUS boss Karl Erjavec's demand for him to continue as defence minister. Both the probable PM-designate and Erjavec admitted the possibility DeSUS would not be in the coalition.
