Slovenia Culture Minister Presicek resigns amidst abuse of office claims.

Slovenia’s Culture Minister Dejan Presicek resigned on Monday after employees at the ministry accused him of bullying and abuse of office.

A week ago union representatives at the ministry had demanded that he step down.

The union claims Presicek’s bullying led to the suicide of an employee at the ministry and also accuses him of misusing an official car for private purposes.



Presicek has admitted misusing the car but has denied all allegations of bullying.

Presicek, a saxophone professor and former head of the Ljubljana Music and Ballet Conservatory, is the second minister to be forced out of Sarec’s centre-left government formed by a five-party minority coalition in September after Development Minister Marko Bandelli resigned in November over abuse of office allegations.

Despite the scandals, a poll published by the private POP TV station on Sunday showed Sarec’s government was supported by 65.8 per cent of respondents, the highest approval rating a Slovenian government has had in years.

Ben Ali led the country for 30years and was credited with delivering stability and some economic prosperity.

But he received widespread criticism for suppressing political freedoms and for widespread corruption.

In 2011, he was forced from office following mass street protests. This triggered a wave of similar uprisings across the Arab world.

At least half a dozen countries in the region saw their president fall or conflicts break out in the wake of the former Tunisian leader’s downfall, in what became known as the Arab Spring.

Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government

Published

After a vote tally showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tied with his main rival.

Israel’s weakened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw his offer on Thursday for a coalition with his strongest political rival,  Gantz, swiftly rebuffed after failing to secure a governing majority in a tight election.

Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.

Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.

Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
