Economy to Dominate Questions to PM


All four questions - three from the opposition and one from the coalition - to Prime Minister Alenka BratuĊĦek will deal with the economy.

The opposition will seek answers about the government's plans for implementing strategic economic documents sent to the EU and measures for bolstering small and medium enterprises.

The prime minister will also be quizzed about measures to promote the drawing of EU funds and efforts to safeguard workers rights and create jobs.

The lone opposition question will come from the prime minister's party, which will inquire about the key measures planned by the government for restoring sustainable economic growth.

Questions time will open a three-day plenary that will continue on Wednesday with a debate on the government's plan to raise excise on tobacco and biofuels as a means of salvaging the budget following the collapse of the real estate tax.

Also on Wednesday, MPs will conduct the third reading of the bill for the prevention of undeclared work, a key piece of the government's efforts to fight the shadow economy.

After a break on Thursday for an emergency session dedicated to setting the date of the referendum on the changes to the archives bill, the session will conclude on Friday with a debate on legislation on the ownership transformation of lottery operator Loterija Slovenije.
