Slovenia's leading politicians must resign

Slovenia's anti-corruption authority has accused Prime Minister Janez Janša and the leader of the opposition Zoran Janković of repeatedly neglecting their duty to inform the authority of any changes in their financial circumstances. Columnist Stanislav Kovač calls for their resignation in the business paper Finance: "The anti-corruption authority has detected violations of the law, lacking transparency in their dealings and suspected abuses of power on the part of the country's two leading politicians, Janša and Janković. If the two don't resign they send the following message to society: break the law, do shady dealings and ignore the findings of the investigative authorities! Such behaviour on the part of politicians leads to the decay of a state's written and unwritten social norms. For this reason Janša and Janković must assume responsibility and step down. Otherwise Slovenia could sink into a state of chaos, which could also lead to the total breakdown of the system."
