Fourteen electric chairs

By: Gašper Blažič

The constitutional accusation is a political (especially political, not so much legal) instrument that serves to control power in democratic countries. It was also on the agenda several times during the previous term of the US administration, as then-President Donald Trump was constantly attacked by opponents who are now silent under the rule of John Biden.

It is not much different in Slovenia either – now that there is a “wrong” government in power, which could at most be blamed for being too reticent about some of the most important projects, such as judicial reform – “Kul” clowns, who are formally part of the opposition, are making a fuss. But the coalition-opposition relationship is a matter of formality in our country – social subsystems such as the media, trade unions, education, and the like are still under the total control of the political underworld. This is one of the reasons why the constitutional accusation is in fact only a part of the wider political theatre, which actually serves to satisfy the biggest “pearls” in the parliamentary ranks. In the first place, this applies to Jani Möderndorfer, Miha Kordiš and others. In reality, this is just a struggle for succession to power. As the then Prime Minister Janez Drnovšek said more than two decades ago in his constitutional accusation: “You will still kill each other…” But he did not know that this was especially true of his party comrades, who then really fought for Drnovšek’s inheritance.

Of course, today the LDS and its derivatives, such as Zares, are nowhere to be found – but that is why some of its cadres “found themselves” in the new political parties (Möderndorfer is only the most obvious example here). It is he and the party he joined, LMŠ, that are, in fact, the most grotesque indicator of political provincialism. Marjan Šarec, however, must be admitted that he is at least honest, as he recently admitted what a comparison one of his high school teachers hung on him. Apparently, the fourteen chairs that the LMŠ MPs took to the parliament are electric – they illustrate the suicidal behaviour of what is supposed to be a “new policy” …
