Without new government Slovenia faces standstill

After the allegations of corruption against Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, his centre-right coalition is on very shaky ground. Following a fruitless meeting with its coalition partners, the Civic List party led by President of the National Assembly Gregor Virant, as well as two smaller parties now want to withdraw from the coalition government. The left-liberal daily Delo predicts that Janša will stay in office, which could bring the country to a complete standstill: " Janez Janša doesn't have to say, promise or do anything now. He can just remain silent, which is precisely what he is doing intensively these days. The less he does in this affair, the more stable his government will be. But it won't be able to work effectively. Perhaps a few reforms on which everyone has already agreed will go through parliament, but then things will get difficult. Until we have a new government, the country will be in a state of paralysis. Political, economic, financial and general paralysis."
