Finance and Justice Ministers Resign


Janša thanked the outgoing ministers for their cooperation, which had been correct despite the "caprice" of DL president Gregor Virant.

Janša said in a press conference after today's government session that he accepted the ministers' resignations and had already sent them to parliament, so that the National Assembly will be informed about their move next week.

"When this is done, you will be informed of the next steps," Janša told the press when asked who could succeed Šušteršič and Pličanič.

The DL left the coalition yesterday evening leaving Janša with a minority government. The move came a fortnight after the Corruption Prevention Commission presented a report that found Janša violated anti-corruption law.

In the following days, the DL, the People's Party (SLS) and the Pensioners' Party (SLS) said they would leave coalition unless Janša resigns. New Slovenia (NSi) remains the only coalition partner not to demand Janša's resignation.

Virant, who serves as parliament speaker, said he would resign from the position on Monday.
