>Slovene PM plays the grey card


Prime Minister of Slovenia, Janez Jansa, reports Slovenia News, received representatives of the Pension and Disability Insurance Institute of the Republic of Slovenia and the Slovenian Federation of Pensioners’ Organizations ’ to discuss options for improving the social position and social inclusion of pensioners. He want to improve the social condition of future generations of pensioners and pointed out that on taking office his government had index-linked pensions and was planning to increase the capacity of retirement homes, but ‘the Government is also looking into certain measures that could be implemented in the context of reducing public spending’ (unspecified). Circle well and truly squared then. What’s the date of the next parliamentary election?*

Citing more or less directly from the EU active ageing strategy – Jansa adds that he wants to promote the social inclusion of older people and draw on their knowledge to advance national goals.
