Ljubljana – Four centre-left opposition parties have finalised an agreement on cooperation after the election. Party leaders initialled the agreement on Tuesday and will sign it next week pending approval by the top decision-making bodies of each of the parties.
The agreement involves the Marjan Šarec List (LMŠ), Social Democrats (SD), Left and Alenka Bratušek Party (SAB).
The SAB council unanimously endorsed the pact tonight as the first of the four. The remaining parties will hold sessions at the weekend.
The content of the agreement has not been revealed in today’s press releases circulated by all four parties.
The idea for a post-election alliance was put forward by LMŠ leader Marjan Šarec in mid-August. He said such a pact was necessary to “return Slovenia to normalcy and to democracy”.
“After Covid-19, government terror and disregard for the rule of law and after the hole they dug in public finances, Slovenia will need a normalisation,” Bratušek said after the party council session, pledging for the four parties to deliver that after the election.
She promised the party would do all in its power for Slovenia to have a stable and strong economy as a basis for the welfare state, listing pensioners, healthcare and public education as SAB’s top priorities.
