Pahor declines call to prevent “political” appointments of diplomats

By: P.T., STA

President Borut Pahor turned down a call by the Marjan Šarec List (LMŠ) not to sign a decree appointing new ambassadors ahead of the general election.

He said that postponement of the appointments as part of regular rotation would be unjustified and harm the country’s foreign policy interests in the international community. Pahor said that the appointments were necessary as the terms of the current ambassadors were expiring. The procedure in “not tied to the electoral cycle, which is good.”
