“Namely, this coalition no longer made any sense, as it was only dealing with mutual elbowing and personnel bargaining,” the coordinator of the Levica party (the Left), Luka Mesec, commented after the resignation of the former Prime Minister Marjan Šarec on the 27th of January 2020, adding that the coalition collapsed in on itself and that it was impossible to implement policies in such a government. And these people are now trying to convince the public once again that they are a real, viable alternative to the current government?
The bodies of the SD, LMŠ, SAB, and Levica parties recently decided to conclude a political agreement on cooperation of these parties in the upcoming parliamentary elections, in order to convince the public that the parties, which already had to work together in the previous, Marjan Šarec government, will now unite in a new coalition, which will save the country from all of its hardships. The text, the context of which has not yet been made public, will be presented on Tuesday.
But fortunately, the people have the proof they need, and even with all of the publicity and promotion of these parties, the mainstream media will not be able to hide what these people were saying about each other just a short while ago. At this point, we should remind you of the 27th of January 2020, when the then-Prime Minister Marjan Šarec resigned unexpectedly. What the leaders of the aforementioned parties said about each other tells us a lot about the downright chaotic situation from the previous coalition.
Here is what they said:
Luka Mesec: “Namely, this coalition no longer made any sense, as it was only dealing with mutual elbowing and personnel bargaining.”
Alenka Bratušek: “This is the first thing I wanted to point out – the fact that in the SAB party, we are disappointed that, despite being a part of the coalition… we learned about the Prime Minister’s resignation from the media.”
Luka Mesec: “Last but not least, these policies were further strengthened in the coalition agreement of the coalition that was led by Marjan Šarec up until today, but during the implementation, it turned out that the old policies still prevailed. Certain things were written but never carried out. This coalition collapsed in on itself. However, it is a fact that there is probably more behind the resignation of the Prime Minister than just the Minister of Finance’s resignation. The Prime Minister’s resignation is probably due to the bitter realisation that, with this coalition, it was not possible to implement the policies he signed as the Prime Minister in the coalition agreement.”
Marjan Šarec: “In a coalition like this one, where instead of a thank you for all the efforts, for the fact that you supported the minister and you worked hard for her, you get a proposal for resignation in case she is not confirmed, as if you proposed her yourself, it is difficult to work.”
Dejan Židan: “Today,” was Židan’s answer to the question of when the coalition partners learned about Šarec’s resignation. “As per usual, the coalition partners were not informed about anything.”
We leave you with a question. Are you certain that these same people will be able to convince you that in a new coalition, things will get better?
