No political crisis in cabinet, Slovenian PM says

04-29-2011 11:12 BJT

LJUBLJANA, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor on Thursday categorically denied the opposition's saying that his government is in political crisis.

"The government performed its duties successfully and efficiently and it enjoys political support in the National Assembly," Slovenia's Press Agency (STA) quoted Pahor as saying.

The prime minister also denied that he would step down after the June 5 pension reform referendum, adding that pension reform will be his top priority in government's work.

Advocating that pension reform would benefit individuals, Pahor warned that Slovenians may suffer a drop of their standard of living if the reform is rejected in the scheduled referendum.

Slovenia needs reform, Pahor said, however, all other reforms in the country are futile if pension reform is rejected in the referendum.

Local politicians believe that the June 5 referendum on the pension reform will be a decisive moment for Pahor's coalition government.

Early elections will be unavoidable if the government's proposal is rejected in the referendum, they said.
