End of government good for Slovenians

The Slovenian minority government of Social Democrat Borut Pahor failed to survive a vote of confidence on Tuesday. Fifty-one of the 88 parliamentarians present voted against the government reshuffle proposed by Pahor, to which he had tied the motion of confidence. But apart from President Danilo Türk no one seems to be bothered by the fall of the Pahor government, the daily Delo comments: "The lack of concern with which the government's demise has been received will no doubt last for a few more days, and during that time President Türk may well be regarded as a bit of an oddball, with all his concerns about the current situation. But soon the challenges facing the country will have to be met. And perhaps in time the new situation will inspire a fresh attitude to politics, its obligations and its limits."
