Parliament Reconvenes over Bank Bailout


The issue has been raising controversy in Slovenia for a while, especially because of the erasure of junior bond holders, who have challenged the bail-in at the Constitutional Court.

Parliament has already held several debates on the topic at the committee level. The latest plenary has been requested by the opposition New Slovenia (NSi) but backed by all deputy factions.

Answers to questions will be sought from the governor of the central bank, BoĊĦtjan Jazbec, who has been invited to the session.

Meeting in preparation of the session earlier this week, the Finance and Monetary Policy Committee proposed for Banka Slovenije to present the methodology used in the 2013 bank asset review that served as a basis for the bailout.

In another item on the agenda, the National Assembly will be formally acquainted with the resignation of Stanka Setnikar Cankar as minister of education, science and sport.

PM Miro Cerar will act as a stand-in until a new minister is appointed. According to him, a nominee is to be presented shortly.
