The Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) will start working on the commitments from the coalition agreement, Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša (SDS) announced in a letter to the party membership on Sunday.
“Once the decision is made, it is not acceptable to demolish it or break it with the help of opposition votes in the National Assembly. The SDS will no longer allow this,” Janša wrote.
This comes as Janša’s government marked one year in office on 13 March, a year heavily focused on the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The year also saw a troubled relationship between the government and many of the country’s subsystems, including the media.
This is an expected step after the opposition Constitutional Arch coalition failed to overthrow Janša’s government. Karl Erjavec also recently announced his resignation as President of the Pensioners Party (DeSUS) and since Slovenia is set to take on the EU Council Presidency in just three months the lack of snap elections in that period will allow Janša to play a strong hand in the governing coalition.
