President Pahor Concluding First Year of Term



At the first meeting in March, the parties agreed to re-launch talks on constitutional changes on referendum, ratify Croatia's EU accession treaty and carry out a reform of the labour market. All these decisions were later implemented.

The second meeting in December saw the parties reach a consensus on changes to the electoral system, the president's office said in a press release.

The office also pointed to the project Slovenia 2030, which Pahor launched in order to bring together Slovenian intellectuals and notable public figures to debate long-term visions.

Pahor's picks for several important posts in the country, including Human Rights Ombudsman Vlasta Nussdorfer, Banka Slovenije Governor Boštjan Jazbec and Court of Audit President Tomaž Vesel, have been endorsed in parliament.

In his diplomatic role as a promoter of the Slovenian economy, the president had 19 international visits and 68 formal and informal meetings with state officials, and hosted 15 high-profile international meetings in Slovenia.

Pahor was elected Slovenia's fourth president on 2 December in the run-off with his predecessor Danilo Türk. He sworn in at the National Assembly on 22 December 2013, formally taking over from Türk for a five-year term on the next day.
