The Slovenian opposition party announced today that they have put forward a constitutional complaint to Prime Minister Jane Jansha in the parliamentary process, claiming that he violated several laws and constitutional provisions.
Marjan ŠarcList (LMŠ), Social Democrats (SD), Alenka Bratušek Party (SAB) and Left Party (L) MPs pointed out in the indictment against Janša that he and his government have allocated all powers to the Constitution and the law. The management of the pandemic and their unsuccessful. For example, according to reports, Yangsha rejected the possibility of ordering more Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines in December last year, as well as his pressure on the media and independent national institutions.
LMŠ President and former Prime Minister Marjan Šarec put forward the substance of the litigation proposal, saying that Janša refused to pay legal funds to fund the Slovenian news agency STA to destroy it, and refused to confirm some national prosecutors and representatives of Slovenia’s European prosecution. Tania Fahon, chairman of the Social Democratic Party, said that the allegations in the proposal to initiate a constitutional lawsuit against the prime minister are well-founded, showing that Yansha violated basic human rights and constitutional rights for ideological reasons and undermined the foundation of democracy.
The constitutional complaint against the president, prime minister or government minister is a political method stipulated in the constitution and has been used several times in history, but so far, such complaints by the opposition have ended in failure.
In total, at least 10 of the 90 members have signed enough to submit a proposal for a constitutional complaint to the parliamentary process. Congress must debate and vote on the proposal within one month after it is submitted. If it does not happen, the proposal is considered rejected. If a decision is made, in order for the parliament to accept the content of the constitutional appeal and send it to the Constitutional Court for consideration, a majority of the members of the House of Representatives is required. In order for the lawsuit to be accepted by the Constitutional Court, two-thirds of the constitutional judges must vote in favor of the constitutional lawsuit.
So far, in the several initiatives to initiate constitutional complaints, neither the former nor the latter have occurred. The opposition accuses Jansa’s government of mismanagement of the epidemic, pressure from the media and the judiciary, and many other errors or crimes in domestic and international politics, hoping to prove that the government does not have a majority in parliament. The recent attempt by the ruling party to dispense with Speaker Igor Zorčič also shows this. Prior to this, Zorčič left the Modern Center Alliance (SMC) and criticized the actions of Janša and the government, but was removed by one vote due to the removal, which shows that the current government’s position is unstable.
