SLS to Cancel Contract With LDS and Merge with SKD

Krško, 28 January - Following the first round of Slovene Christian Democrats (SKD) executive council talks on Friday, the president of the party, Lojze Peterle, expressed satisfaction in regard to Thursday's statement from Janez Podobnik (SLS) which indicated that the Slovene People's Party (SLS) supports a future merger with the SKD.

The meeting was also attended by the SLS leader of the MPs group, Franc Zagozen, who stated that a merger with the SKD would mean the end of a contract with the LDS, which forms the current coalition government.
