Slovenian government gambles away trust

Hundreds of people took part in protests in the Slovenian city of Maribor on Monday, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Janez Janša's government. The unions have called for a major demonstration in the capital Ljubljana on November 17. For the left-liberal daily Delo the government has gambled away the people's trust: "These protests are above all a rebellion against the government, which is losing the people's trust. ... Its opponents have now grown to the size of an army. ... There is no doubt that reforms must be carried out, and that they should aim at the right targets. But the precondition for their implementation is a broad political consensus and trust in the government. Unfortunately the government is achieving exactly the opposite because it clings to solutions that are tailored to certain interest groups - like the make-up of the management board of the state holding company."
