On 29th of December the National Council did not vote on a suspensive veto on the new intervention law, thus paving the way for faster implementation of additional measures to mitigate the consequences of covid-19, worth 280 million euros.
The prevailing opinion among councillors was that the law should be enforced as soon as possible.
Minister of Finance Andrej Šircelj also called for the measures to be implemented as soon as possible. “This will make people’s lives easier and ensure the work of the economy,” he said.
The government proposes that the new intervention law, which includes new allowances for the most vulnerable, liability for complications in vaccination or use of the drug against covid-19 and raising the upper limit for the classification of doctors and dentists in salary grades, cannot be called subsequent legislative referendum. Therefore, an extraordinary session of the National Assembly is expected to be convened shortly.
