MPs Unanimously Send Pension Reform to Second Reading

Ljubljana, 15 November - The National Assembly unanimously endorsed the government pension reform bill as suitable for further debate in a vote Thursday. The 88-0 vote came after coalition MPs stressed the importance of the reform for shoring up public finance and in spite of the opposition's warnings that the proposed reform would be short-lived.
