Almost two weeks have passed since the elections and soon after the results were known, negotiations on a new government began between the parties.
The president of the winning Freedom Movement party, Robert Golob, has announced that it will be assembled in record time.
This means that he intends to put it together even faster than Lojze Peterle managed in 1990 – it took him just 34 days.
Who will participate in Golob’s government?
Three ministerial posts are expected to be won by Levica, four by the SD, and all others by the Freedom Movement. It is not yet known what the final number of ministries will be, but we already know that there will be more than there are now.
Some will probably be reorganized and four new ones opened, Golob said after a coalition coordination meeting.
I am convinced that we are living in a time when we will have to start implementing change, because time is pushing us to do so. But you can’t make changes in politics without investing in it.Robert Golob
He pointed out that his government would pay special attention to climate policy, intergenerational solidarity, digitalization and regional development.
We will find out on Wednesday which ministries will get which party. At that time, it will also be known who the candidates for leading them are.
Points To Consider
- Is a government more efficient if it has more or fewer ministries?
