Slovenia Has New Government

Ljubljana, 7 June - The Slovene Parliament gave the green light to Prime Minister Andrej Bajuk's centre-right government in a 46:44 public vote, ending a two-month government crisis. Bajuk, a 57-year old former banker who returned to Slovenia after spending most of his life in Argentina, has confidence in the majority his government has secured today, and hopes that his government would even manage to secure a greater degree of support later on when EU-compatible legislation is in parliament, he told the press after his government was appointed. Immediately after the appointment the new government was sworn in, and continued the celebration of its "victory" in Preseren Square, one of the main squares in Ljubljana.
