Slovenia: vote of no confidence in Jansa government on Wed.

All MPs will be tested for coronavirus

18 January, 17:30

    (ANSAmed) - LJUBLJANA, JANUARY 18 - The Slovenian parliament will vote on Wednesday a constructive motion of no confidence proposed by the opposition against the government of conservative Premier Janez Jansa. But before the secret vote all lawmakers will need to test negative for coronavirus. Parliament Speaker Igor Zori has informed that the vote has been planned for two days, despite the fact that an MP, the Social Democrat Matja Han, tested positive. A potential postponement, he observed, would not prevent new cases, saying that it was necessary to test MPs voting on Wednesday. On Friday, the website 24ur.com said secret services director, Janez Stuek, had tested positive for Covid after attending that day a session of the parliamentary commission overseeing intelligence services and security (Knovs). The nine commission members included four opposition lawmakers. There is fear that Stuek could have infected other participants whose presence is now requested for the vote. Meanwhile the executive council of the pensioners' party (DeSUS) has proposed to vote a motion of no confidence and to formally adhere to the Coalition of the constitutional arch (Kul), joining the List Marjan Sarec, Socialdemocrats (SD), the left (Levica) and the party of Alenka Bratusek (SAB).
