Drnovsek: The Government Functions Normally; the Name of the New Defence Minister is Not Known Yet

Ljubljana, 20 November - GOVERNMENT/DRNOVSEK
Slovene Premier Janez Drnovsek said at a regular news conference Friday that "despite a rather heated political atmosphere" in the past weeks and days, the government functions normally and is solving a number of problems. The name of the candidate for the new defence minister is not determined yet since the Slovene People's Party (SLS) has not submitted it as yet, but Drnovsek expects that the coalition partner will do it in the following days, otherwise one of the ministers or even the premier himself will have to take over the ministerial post for three months.
