Amended Government Act Effective as of Saturday
Ljubljana, 21 December - The amended government act, which reduces the number of government ministers to 14 and introduces the institute of ministerial councilors and strategic councils, will take effect as of Saturday. The amendment was passed by Parliament in mid-November, but was put on hold after a group of citizens filed an initiative to collect signatures for a referendum questioning that piece of legislation.
