Ljubljana, September 27, 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency
The National Assembly appointed on Tuesday in a 51:0 vote Jurij Groznik the new state solicitor general. Groznik, who will serve a six-year term, was picked by the government among four applicants for the post.
The government said that the 46-year-old candidate was aware of the need for change when it came to defending the financial and legal interests of the state before domestic and foreign legal forums. He also exudes the personal and leadership characteristics needed to enact these changes.
Groznik, who has served as state solicitor for several years, will succeed Boštjan Tratar, whose term ended on 16 July. Tratar’s deputy Mateja Senih has been in charge of the office since.
