Opposition Criticises Crisis Budget For Lack of Economic Incentive

Ljubljana, 16 July - The debate continues in parliament on Thursday ahead of the vote on the second supplementary budget for 2009, expected to take place late at night or tomorrow. The proposal, which among other things raises the budget deficit to 5% of GDP, is being criticised by the opposition for failing to give enough incentive to the troubled Slovenian economy.
