A Slovenian government crisis averted

Slovenia's centre-right government under Prime Minister Janez Jansa won a parliamentary vote of confidence by 51 votes to 33 on Monday. Jansa proposed the vote of confidence because he saw Slovenia's unity under threat in the run-up to the country's EU presidency, which begins on 1 January 2008. The opposition insists that the real reason for the vote of confidence was the election victory of presidential candidate Danilo Türk. Igor Krsinar comments: "The outgoing president, Janez Drnovsek, often found it difficult to see eye to eye with the government. Now he's leaving. The government's image has suffered considerably as a result of its conflicts with him. The more fruitful the government's cooperation with Drnovsek's successor is, the more its public image will improve. Particularly during the time of Slovenia's EU presidency, the government must present a united front."
