Matej Tonin, the defence minister and leader of New Slovenia (NSi), said the ruling coalition had “solid” 47 MP votes even after the Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS) quit the coalition.

He is convinced the government will finish the term without major difficulties. Tonin based his claim on the 47 MP votes on dozens of telephone conversations and guarantees given by MPs. He said he would not be surprised if the opposition failed to seek the planned vote of no confidence in the end.
