Slovenia Weekly

Slovenia is on the right path. Let’s be optimistic.


Source: UKOM
Today marks 26 years of the ground-breaking unity of Slovenians, when nearly 90 percent of voters opted for an independent state. This day marks the historic decision of the Slovenian nation for an independent state.

It was often written in the past that Slovenians had never been more unified than on that day. In the light of current events, this year calls for a special reflection and realization of what Slovenians wanted and the goals they set for themselves 26 years ago. Especially challenging is perhaps the appeal for unity.

The traditional meeting of all four presidents shows that we can work together and find a common language. If the 2014 meeting ended with acts of reconciliation and the 2015 meeting was marked by the then forthcoming refugee crisis, the message of this year’s meeting is that Slovenia will continue to secure political stability as has been provided by the present Government for the last two years. “We can only advance together”, emphasised Prime Minister Miro Cerar, and all four presidents agreed that Slovenia is on the right path and that there are good reasons for justified optimism.

Happy holidays! P.S. The next Slovenia Weekly will be published on 6 January 2017.
