Still No Deal on Pension Freeze

Ljubljana, 23 September - The meeting between the junior coalition Pensioners' Party (DeSUS), Prime Minister Borut Pahor and several ministers on Wednesday did not bring an agreement on the proposed pension freeze. This means that the draft budgets for 2010 and 2011 were taken off the agenda of the cabinet's Thursday session.
