Ljubljana, 20 September - Speaker of Parliament Janez Podobnik issued last Thursday writs for local elections in Slovenia, which, with the exception of the municipality of Koper, will be held on 22 November. Last week was also marked by a pastoral letter containing the views of Slovene bishops on the education system, and by alleged irregularities within the Ministry of Education and Sport. The National Assembly supported an amendment to the Denationalization Act, and in several votes on Wednesday and Thursday amended the Posocje Reconstruction Act, regulating post-earthquake reconstruction of properties and the stimulation of economic development in Posocje. The negotiating teams of the government and the nurses' trade union on Friday initialled a treaty on the supplement to the collective agreement for health care.

The office of public prosecutions has recently received complaints against two persons in connection with the operations of the Lek company involving the financing of the election campaign of the Slovene People's Party (SLS) in 1992.
