Slovenia: Coalition agreement to be initialed next Tuesday


Review Hari Stefanatos

Simona Kustec Lipicer, deputy group head in Miro Cerar’s SMC, announced on Wednesday after the end of the coalition agreement talks that agreements have been reached on all substantial points and while the Cabinet composition is still under discussion, the agreement is expected to be initialed on Tuesday.

The distribution of ministries and the names of the new ministers, to be coordinated among the three party leaders, are also expected to be clear by Tuesday’s initialing, Kustec Lipicer announced.

She also said that the three soon to be coalition partners  have all stated their commitment in the investigation of the losses of the banking sector and this will be implicitly stated in the document.

There is an unofficial rumor going around that the coalition talks on the composition of the Cabinet could get complicated over an alleged demand by DeSUS for additional cabinet posts should SD MP Tanja Fajon be selected for Slovenia’s EU Commissioner.

DeSUS’s Saša Ivan Geržina confirmed “that of course a new distribution of ministries will be discussed” if Fajon, meaning “one from the coalition” gets appointed commissioner.
