Ljubljana – There is no spiral of violence in Slovenia, but there is a spiral of an upward trend in coronavirus infections, Prime Minister Janez Janša said during Monday’s Q&A session in parliament. Due to irresponsible behaviour, the country is on the verge of being forced to reintroduce lockdown measures, he said.
Ljubljana – Prime Minister Janez Janša said that the response to the Covid-19 pandemic had been belated in particular in countries where governments needed to get parliamentary approval to take measures, as he addressed an international online conference on governments and public sector post-recovery on Monday.
Koper – Instead of taking some time to meet the European Parliament’s fact-finding mission, Prime Minister Janez Janša took to Twitter to yet again bring shame on the country, himself and Slovenian diplomats abroad, the newspaper Primorske Novice says on Saturday, suggesting that the media should perhaps start ignoring his provocations.
Ljubljana – A delegation of the European Parliament’s committee on civil liberties, justice and home affairs (LIBE) visiting Slovenia on a fact-finding mission has expressed concern mainly at the tone of public debate, while also calling for the issues of STA funding and European delegated prosecutor appointments to be addressed urgently.
Brdo pri Kranju – Prime Minister Janez Janša has accused the European Commission of exceeding its powers and of political abuse of the rule of law in an interview with Euronews, saying in its efforts to get member states to comply with the EU’s fundamental values the Commission is “close to breaking the rule of law” itself.
Ljubljana – Unity is rare in Slovenian politics but the unity in the criticism of President Borut Pahor, who held talks with Zoran Stevanović, the initiator of recent protests against the Covid pass mandate, is not something to be happy about, as it is driven by calculations and fear, Delo says on Tuesday.
Ljubljana – Prime Minister Janez Janša said the government would “not cave to pressure” after Zoran Stevanović, the leader of the protests against the Covid pass mandate, called on the government to resign or face new protests, including a blockade of the upcoming EU-Western Balkans summit. He called on the competent authorities to take action.
