President and minority MPs discuss health reform
Ljubljana, 25 January - President Nataša Pirc Musar wrapped up her series of talks with representatives of lawmakers on Wednesday by hosting the two MPs representing the Italian or Hungarian minority. The discussion with Felice Žiža and Ferenc Horvath focused on the planned health reform and other current political issues.
Pirc Musar, Žiža, who represents the Italian minority in parliament, and Horvath, an MP representing the Hungarian minority, agreed that such meetings were a useful contribution to public debate, the president's office said.
Their meeting revolved mainly around the health reform the coalition intends to carry through, but they also talked about potential changes to the electoral system and other constitutional categories. Another issue they discussed was the planned reform of the public sector pay system.
As part of the series of meetings, launched last week, Pirc Musar met senior representatives of all parliamentary parties and the minority MPs. The aim of the talks was to establish a constructive dialogue with the lawmakers and to agree on cooperation, a press release added.
