Government Approves 1996 Draft Budget

Ljubljana, 15 October - TOPIC/WEEK/BUDGET/DRAFT
After longstanding and heated coalition negotiations, Slovene government last week unanimously approved the 1996 draft budget. According to Minister of Finance Mitja Gaspari, Parliament is to begin the treatment of the 1996 draft budget at the beginning of the next week. If everything goes smoothly in the Parliament, the budget could be adopted by the end of the year, and, consequently, Slovenia could avoid pre-election budget deals before the next year legislative elections.
