Janša Left with Minority Govt as DL Quit Coalition

Ljubljana, 23 January - Prime Minister Janez Janša has been left with a minority government after the Citizens' List (DL) decided on Wednesday to quit the coalition due to his refusal to step down over allegations of graft. The government is two ministers short and the National Assembly is without a speaker as the political crisis deepens.
