PRESS REVIEW FROM SLOVENIA, FEBRUARY 29, 1992
Ljubljana, 29 February - THE DNEVNIK: HOW TO HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT, TOO - How to remedy the now almost intolerable governmental crisis without having to relinquish the seat of power is the motto of all that's cooking behind the closed doors of Prime Minister Peterle's Cabinet this week, wrote Ivanka Mihelčič. Lojze Peterle has offered his former - current partners a formula for getting rid of three ministers which almost blew up in his face and lost him the support of the Green Party to boot. The author of the article goes on to express the surmise that the Prime Minister's calculations may even have a kind of acceptable logic to them. Lojze Peterle stated that he is not changing his mind and that "the gentlemen will just have to resign of their own accord". The proposed plan of governmental reorganization suggests that the number of ministries should remain unaltered and that some of the ministerial offices be offered to the opposition instead. If any of the oppositional parties will agree to this, it is bound to tip the scales in favour of a vote to change the three ministers (and Democratic Party members) in question. The whole thing would be more acceptable to the oppositional parties if Lojze Peterle were not Prime Minister, but somebody has spread the rumour that the current Prime Minister will soon join the Diplomatic Corps, anyway. The entire affair promises to develop in a way that reminds one of the folk saying about keeping your cake and eating it, too. It just remains to be seen, though, if it will also solve the governmental crisis, concluded Ms. Mihelčič.
