Motion Tightening Referendum Rules Headed for Failure

Ljubljana, 31 January - The National Assembly's discussion on changes to the referendum act at first reading on Thursday showed the original coalition parties supporting the tightening of referendum rules and two opposition parties warning against limiting the right to a popular vote. This means the changes will probably not get the necessary two-thirds support.
