Monthly Review of Events in June 1993
Ljubljana, 5 July - REVIEW/MONTHLY/SLOVENIA
On 25 June, Slovenia celebrated the second anniversary of independence. Just before the festivities started, six politicians who had been awarded national honours for their role in the struggle for independence returned their awards to the President of the Republic. Deputies of the National Assembly confirmed the changes and additions to the Law on Privatisation in spite of the suspension veto by the National Council. The June session of the National Assembly was interrupted for two days by a debate on the performance of the justice minister, Marjan Kozinc. This month was strongly marked by the protests of farmers, teachers and workers in the metal and electrical industries. Unions in the non-commercial sector signed a general collective agreement with the government. The farmers' demand for higher prices for milk and wheat led to increases in the prices of bread and milk. The government condemned these price rises as unjustified and demanded a return to the prices of 1 June. The Krško Nuclear Power Plant was under repair for the whole of June, and it is not expected to come back into operation before the end of July.
