PRESS REVIEW FROM SLOVENIA, Ljubljana, March 25, 1992 (STA)

Ljubljana, 25 March - DELO: FACTIONAL PRATTLE - It looks like certain "centre coalition" parties are far from being really interested in a government reshuffle and keep on participating in the game only to enhance their party's public image. For, how else could one explain that after almost a month-long consultations each new meeting opens up new issues and raises new doubts, or simply ends up in the debate on issues already agreed upon. If a few weeks ago they could not reach agreement because the odds were that the salutary parliamentary elections would be held as early as this spring, now it has dawned even upon complete political outsiders that the salvation for Slovenia and for some parties will not come before the end of the year. And that makes the "centre coalition's" current shilly-shallying all the more ridiculous and irresponsible. The parties most probably do not realize that it is the two poles of the partisan spectrum, those which are not included in the negotiations on a new coalition, that take the most out of their "foot-dragging". Should the "hexagonal's" Thursday meeting end up like the Monday meeting, Slovenia will embark upon a long period of political agony in which everything will be permitted. One only fears, writes Veso Stojanov, that the whole thing may end up just as one party leader anticipated when saying: "If this hen (coalition) goes on cackling for long time yet and lays no egg, the only thing we can do is kill the hen."
