Former Slovenian PM calls for impeachment of PM Janša

Former Slovenian Prime Minister and head of the LMŠ party, Marjan Šarec, has called for an impeachment of Prime Minister Janez Janša for his failure to order a second round of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines in June, a move Šarec considered unconstitutional.

Šarec argued Janša had caused direct damage to citizens and speculated whether the failure to order the vaccine was down to “price speculation”, as the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines are more expensive, “or whether the aim is to prolong the epidemic indefinitely”. 

Šarec believes that the entire opposition will be united in impeaching the current PM “and that the Assembly will show who cares about citizens and who does not”. A constitutional impeachment against the PM can be brought if it is backed by at least 10 members of the National Assembly.
