Slovenian coalition talks might take time, Večer report reads
Slovenian coalition talks began yesterday but things look grim due to the differences among the six parliamentary parties that take part in them, with the Večer newspaper report saying that they "cannot be expected to be concluded fast given the conflict of interests of the parties and their staffing networks."

The paper speaks of a possible technocrat leadership of ideologically different partners whose main challenge will not be "the opposition to Janša's potential third arrival to power, but the realisation of their pre-election programmes in a situation when the extreme fragmentation of the political space makes it impossible to create a stable government."

Health, economy and finance will be the basic arenas where Marjan Šarec and his coalition government will prove whether the absence of "(neo)liberal programming guidelines of the centre-right New Slovenia (NSi)" can harm them or whether they could overcome the lack of it.

The Večer report reads that "The NSi is a party which the Šarec List (LMŠ) would like to see in a coalition, now that it has shut its door to the Left. But the LMŠ will have to make huge concessions by the end of the coalition negotiations.".... / IBNA
