PRESS REVIEW FROM SLOVENIA
Ljubljana, 24 February - DNEVNIK: GROWING UP - Dr. Janez Drnovšek's acceptance of the candidature for the president of the Liberal Democratic Party will bring the party new members, and many new, yet unaligned voters, as well as initiate the re-orientation of a number of delegates from other parties. Dr. Drnovšek appeared in a convenient moment for LDS. Not only because of the pre-election campaign, but also because the party is trying to outgrow its youngness (it developed from the Association of Socialist Youth of Slovenia), and overcome internal strife which was burdening the party and which would culminate in the party congress. President Jože Školjč had no other choice but to offer his post to somebody else. The linkage LDS - Drnovšek is not important only for the party, but also for Drnovšek, who has come to the conclusion that it is time for him to abandon his non-alliance. He gave up thought about forming a new party. Considering that most other parties are already presided by some leading Slovene politician the offer from LDS came just in time. The post of the president of the state is also becoming inviting. After the election of course. Until then the party has a several months time to mature and convince its voters, writes Meta Roglič.
