Daily Večer says MPs who backed aliens law should be remembered


While the original proposal for the closure of the border "in case of changed circumstances" required a two-thirds majority in parliament, it now only needs an absolute majority, the paper says in Remember.

The "coalition of the willing", consisting of the ruling SMC (excluding four MPs), a part of the coalition DeSUS and the opposition SDS and NSi, ignored the warning from constitutional and international law experts, ombudsmen, the Council of Europe, and suspended treaties on the right to international protection.

We will take a look at the list of the MPs when the new aliens law, which defines our attitude to fundamental civilisational issues, is reviewed by constitutional judges or the European Court of Human Rights.

Remember the prime minister, who holds a PhD in law, and his "police minister", who is also a jurist by profession, who formed an (un)likely coalition with the right wing to put Slovenia on the wave of nationalism that is raging over Europe.

PM Miro Cerar has created a law which is constitutionally disputable. And dangerous. He has pragmatically sold his principles and the rule of law for populism, Večer argues.

Some people understood the message of hatred coming from the parliament building and thus protested. "Let's remember this black Thursday of parliamentarism, on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day," concludes the commentary.
