Pahor: The Golob Government Will Feel The Consequences Of Its Radical Language First Hand

“Clearly, this mandate is seen as a mandate where dominance must be shown, as if this is a sign of power. However, if you are actually powerful, you don’t have to prove it,” former President of the Republic Borut Pahor recently told the weekly Domovina.

After leaving his previous post, former President of the Republic, Borut Pahor, can be more direct in his assessment and commentary on the current political situation. In an interview with the weekly Domovina, he commented on several topics, and for the first time, we were also able to hear his opinion on the current government of Robert Golob.

On the very anniversary of the first year of the current government’s swearing-in, Pahor commented on its work, saying that the expectations the people had of the new government were high, especially in relation to their promises, and that he saw “a certain stagnation, perhaps even regression” in its work. As he said, the ruling establishment seems to think that it has been given a mandate in order to deal with everything that has been done before, whether good or bad. “That is always bad,” Pahor said.

Pahor then went on to say that this mandate was clearly seen as a mandate in which they want to show dominance as a sign of power. “If you are actually powerful, you don’t have to prove it,” Pahor believes, adding that Robert Golob’s government will, in time, also feel the consequences of this radical rhetoric, which cripples the cohesive power of the community. He predicted that this would happen in a year or two, when the mistrust that is being built up will make it impossible to get many things done.
