Miro Cerar resigned, maybe the election will be held in May

This Wednesday was really eventful.*

First, schools were cancelled because the teachers continued with their strike. Then in the evening, the Prime Minister Dr. Miro Cerar resigned.

What does that mean?

This means that now the election will probably be in May. The voters will decide who will lead the country for the next four years.

Miro Cerar resigned after the Supreme Court ruled that his government acted incorrectly. Namely, the Court ruled that during the campaign for the referendum on the second rail track public funds were used to promote information that supported the decision to build it.

»Today was the last straw, and the second track has experienced a new blow, caused by those who want to stop the positive development of Slovenia. I do not want to participate in such stories.«

He also said that the government is now returning to the hands of citizens.

The government will carry out its ongoing business until the elections. This means that ministers will continue to work on urgent matters, but will not make any important decisions about the future of the country.

And this also means that you won’t have another day off school because of strikes this year.

 

Glossary

The prime minister is the head of government in a country with a parliamentary system. The prime minister is responsible for all the government’s policies and decisions.

 

Point to Consider

  1. Do you think it was the right decision that the prime minister Miro Cerar?
  2. When it is time to say enough?
  3. For what would you go on strike?
