The obstruction obviously failed, but the Speaker of the National Assembly Igor Zorčič is right when he says that such an obstruction does not make the most sense, as the agenda items would be discussed some other time and thus would not be swept from the agenda – political scientist Dr Miro Haček commented on yesterday’s diverse events in the National Assembly. “So I think that KUL has rather bad advisers, because it makes sense to use obstruction when a certain purpose is actually achieved with it, and not just because of empty and hasty destructiveness,” he advised KUL members.
However, if we look at the matter politically, the professor and political scientist Dr Miro Haček explained, the matter is even less rational, as by obstruction the opposition enabled the KUL coalition to simply reject the laws proposed by the opposition. In addition, the votes show that the opposition could, if it stayed in the hall yesterday, reject at least one law (on gambling) proposed by the ruling coalition in the first reading, and possibly a proposal for tax legislation. “This mainly tells us that even 18 months after throwing in the towel, KUL still works in the same way as then and that their content is still far from ideology. Unfortunately,” commented Professor Haček.
