Tuerk Endorses Potocnik for Another Term as Commissioner

Ljubljana, 17 March - President Danilo Tuerk endorsed Janez Potocnik for another term as Slovenia's European commissioner on Tuesday, saying it would be very good for Slovenia if he remained in the European Commission beyond the June Euro elections and if he got a portfolio that would not only help the EU, but also Slovenia's reputation.
