[Public Opinion Poll] The Majority Of Slovenians Support MEP Zver’s Fight For The Disclosure Of Věra Jourová’s Conversations

Some time ago, European Commissioner Věra Jourová came to Slovenia to visit the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia. As many as 55.5 percent of respondents in a recent public opinion poll conducted by the Parsifal Agency believe that the contents of the Commissioner’s conversations with the Court should be disclosed, as they could have potentially influenced the Court’s decision on the Radio-Television Slovenia Act that they were dealing with at the time.   

European Commissioner Věra Jourová visited Slovenia some time ago. At that time, she also visited the Constitutional Court and spoke with its President, Matej Accetto. The Slovenian Democratic Party (Slovenska demokratska stranka – SDS) in particular believes that the purpose of the conversation was to influence the decision on the controversial Golob government amendment to the Radio-Television Slovenia Act, which the court was deciding on at the time.


Member of the European Parliament Milan Zver, a member of the SDS, has long sought to disclose the content of these talks, but key parts of the meeting were concealed by Jourová’s office, as well as by the European Commission, and continue to be concealed to this day. Parsifal also asked 863 people about the controversial case, 55.5 percent of whom said the Commissioner should reveal the content of the talks, while 28 percent believed the matter was no longer relevant. 16.5 percent of respondents could not answer the question.


The survey included 863 respondents, of which 50.8 percent were women. The average age of the participants is 51.7. The majority of the respondents are from the oldest age group (46 percent), which means they were at least 55 years old. 34 percent of the respondents are between 35 and 54 years old, and 20 percent are between 18 and 34 years old. The public opinion poll was conducted by the Parsifal agency between the 22nd and 25th of April 2024.
