Ratification of Border Co-Operation Agreement in Sight?

Koper, 29 January - Another attempt to place the ratification of the Slovene-Croatian border region co-operation agreement on the parliamentary agenda failed on Tuesday; while 40 lawmakers were against the LDS proposal to put it on the agenda only 33 supported it. Voting against the proposal were lawmakers that are convinced that the agreement will prejudice the agreement on the actual border, they include MPs from the coalition Slovene People's Party (SLS) and the opposition Social Democrats (SDS), Christian Democrats (SKD) and National Party (SNS). The lawmakers from the ruling Liberal Democracy (LDS) and the Democratic Party of Pensioners (DeSUS) as well as the opposition United List of Social Democrats (ZLSD) voted for the proposal because they are convinced that the ratification would not prejudice the border in any way.
