The coalition Modern Centre Party (SMC) does not support Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS) leader Karl Erjavec as candidate for prime minister-designate.
“The party is united in the position that we will not support Erjavec,” SMC leader Zdravko Počivalšek told TV Slovenija Friday evening. A similar message was delivered by the SMC’s Igor Zorčič, speaker of the National Assembly, in an interview for Siol.net. He said there were “too many unknowns and open issues about the project of a possible new coalition” and it would be “very risky for the country at this point, and irresponsible of the SMC, to contribute to even greater political instability.”
