SLS Does Not Support Government with Minimal Majority

Ljubljana, 24 January - According to Marjan Podobnik, head of the Slovene People's Party (SLS), the party's leadership, who met Friday afternoon, "regrets that SLS's honest striving for a government of national unity was not successful". The SLS does not support premier-designate Janez Drnovšek's proposal of the government with a majority of only one seat, composed of ministers from Liberal Democracy (LDS), United List of Social Democrats (ZLSD) Slovene National Party (SNS) and Democratic Party of Pensioners (DeSUS), because the SLS believes such a government could not function well nor represent Slovenia's interests successfully. Podobnik also said he was "almost firmly convinced" that the SLS will not join the government, the nucleus of which are 46 lawmakers".
