President Pahor to offer PM-designate nomination to Janša. It is not clear whether Janša will accept it

There is still no majority support for nominating a PM-designate

The President of Slovenia Borut Pahor will meet the winner of the elections, the SDS Party president Janez Janša, at a time when no party leader has a majority support to be elected PM.

Pahor will offer Janša a nomination to form the government, and he expects Janša to answer whether he will accept the nomination or at least try to seek the necessary political support. In the meantime, other parties continue with coalition negotiations with Marjan Šarec, who is also trying to form a ruling coalition.

The winner of the elections, Janez Janša, said at his first meeting with the president of the republic that he would turn down the PM-designate nomination if another parliamentary majority was formed. Less than six weeks after the elections, no one has the needed parliamentary majority. This is why Pahor wants to know whether Janša will agree to accept the nomination in these circumstances and take the time to form a coalition.

If Janša turns down the nomination, Pahor will not inform the National Assembly about it immediately. He will instead wait until the 23rd of July, when the deadline for nominating a PM-designate expires.

By doing so, Pahor is giving additional time to parties with which Marjan Šarec is trying to form a coalition or political majority. It depends on the coalition negotiations, which are now held at an expert level, whether the New Slovenia Party will decide to hold a referendum on entering into a coalition with Šarec, or end the talks.

In this whole story about seeking political majority, we do not need to stress that the threat of early elections is hanging above our politics, like the sword of Damocles. And new early elections would do the least harm to the SDS and the Left.
