Party Leaders Meeting in Attempt to Find Consensus on Reform


The meeting will focus on the work of three cross-party working groups that have been reviewing the government's plans to amend the Constitution with a fiscal rule, sort out the banking system, and set up a sovereign holding as a custodian of state assets.

Judging by statements from the parties, the only working group that has come close to finding common ground is the task force on the sovereign holding.

Meanwhile, the group on the fiscal rule remained deadlocked as the opposition refuses to come on board for the change of Constitution, depriving the coalition of the requisite two-thirds majority in parliament.

There seems to be some headway on the banks as well. But while the opposition has not rejected outright the government's plan to set up a bad bank, it suggested its support would hinge on the modalities, in particular the cost to taxpayers, which are still unclear.
