As expected, and announced, the major Slovenian media are steadily raising their support for Robert Golob as the most desirable candidate on the left. Today, Golob also officially announced his entry into politics with Jure Leben’s Z.dej party from the model affair, and to rehabilitate his status as a left-wing millionaire, he decided to donate a million-dollar prize to charity. The LMŠ, SD, SAB and Levica parties have already knelt and invited Golob to a joint conversation, thus leaving him in the lead on the left, which will prove to be destructive, especially for them.
Robert Golob launched an election campaign in front of numerous cameras in the festival hall at the expense of the state-owned company Gen-I, as he withdrew his consent for Gen-i’s management last week and paved the way for politics. “Last week, I withdrew my consent for Gen-I management. I will no longer sit on the board,” he said, adding that he was embarking on a “new adventure”. He also revealed that his political path will begin on Wednesday when he will run at the congress of the Z.Dej party, of which he is already a member. “Supposedly, the position is free. What will happen on Wednesday, we will see on Wednesday. This is the charm of an adventure,” said Golob.
According to him, Gen-I in 2021 operated fantastically, at a record high. Of course, he did not explain that it was also at the expense of more expensive electricity sold to larger legal entities. Golob ran the company until November 17th, last year, after which he was left without consent for a new term. “Gen-I generated 3.4 billion euros in revenue and 71 million euros in profit last year,” Golob said today. If you have a monopoly on the sale of electricity and you are still selling it at unreasonable prices, all the thanks take on a completely different meaning.
Golob has pocketed the prizes all these years
According to STA, in addition to the increase in revenues and the fourfold increase in profit for last year, Golob is also entitled to an award, which according to some media reports amounts to 1.2 million euros. If he has pocketed the award all these years, he will donate it to charity this year for the needs of the political campaign. “I am also entitled to a reward under my contract. It is not yet known what it will be like today, it depends on the owners, the auditor and the assembly, which will be in June when the situation in the country will be significantly different than now,” said Golob.
Since Golob does not want anyone to think that he can influence the amount of the award from any position, he decided to donate it entirely to humanitarian organisations. However, according to the recent criticism in the media, he could make good use of this act for his political campaign. “The higher the award, the happier I will be,” he said, explaining that he would distribute it among nine humanitarian organisations from all over Slovenia.
They knelt in KUL
In the KUL parties, Golob has already been invited to the first joint meeting, thus giving him the position of leader on the left. They proposed a meeting next Tuesday to defeat the current government. Political experts have repeatedly emphasised that Golob will defeat the KUL party by entering politics, as polls show. The decline in support was noticeable in LMŠ, SAB and SD, moreover LMŠ and SAB are even threatened to drop out of parliament.
They must also take Bratušek under their wing
According to the information available to the investigative journalist Bojan Požar, the left-wing wants to unite the party founded by the President of the National Assembly Igor Zorčič (LIDE), the Green Party of Jure Leben Z.Dej and what is left of the party DeSUS under the leadership of President Ljubo Jasnič. They also want to join Alenka Bratušek’s SAB party in Golob’s party. Golob withdrew from politics in 2013, continued his path to Gen-I and gave space to Bratušek to become Prime Minister. This time, however, the cards could be reversed. “And if Golob withdrew in 2013, when there was still Positive Slovenia after the withdrawal of Zoran Janković, to Bratušek, so that she became Prime Minister, now it will be the other way around!” Požar estimates.
