Remember this post? Good thing we still have a president who does not bow to the government of Janez Janša just like that. Instead, he’s going head-to-head with JJ

The row over the new Governor of the Central Bank of Slovenia is becoming even uglier… After backstabbing Mitja Gaspari, Janez Janša is doing everything he can to put his man on the top spot. Well, Boštjan Jazbec is allegedly even closer to finance minister Andrej Bajuk than to JJ, but close enough.
The Prez, however, will have none of it and proposed Gaspari’s second-in-command, Andrej Rant to the top spot, sparking a more or less open conflict with the government, just as last year’s row over Drnovšek’s travels calmed down. Again, I feel that the President is excersinging his constitutional right and duty to propose a candidate he sees fit – especially if the president is one of the very few sources of political power this administration has not (yet) devoured.
