Slovenia Risks Election as Calls Rise for Jansa to Resign

Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa’s party dismissed calls from coalition partners for him to resign over corruption allegations and refused to take part in any “technical government.”

Jansa allegedly failed to declare “more than 200,000 euros” ($265,260) worth of private assets, according to a Jan. 8 statement by Goran Klemencic, the head of Slovenia’s anti-corruption authority. As a result, two coalition partners called on Jansa to quit.
