No honeymoon for Slovenia's new government

Two months after snap parliamentary elections Slovenia once again has a government. On Thursday evening the parliament approved an alliance put together by Prime Minister Miro Cerar between his SMC party, the pensioners' party DeSUS and the Social Democrats. The coalition is under pressure right from the start, the left-liberal daily Delo comments: "The new government must make urgent decisions, first of all about privatisation and fixing public finances. ... It won't, as is customary, have 100 days without criticism to familiarise itself with its task. Any new government inspires hopes that in one, two or four years things will improve. ... After his big election victory will Prime Minister Miro Cerar manage to reverse the trend of distrust of the executive and the politicians? ... We very much hope the new government will play together as an effective team under a coach with a clear vision."
