Slovenian January 2 Public Holiday Veto Fails

The Slovenian upper chamber of parliament, the National Council, has rejected a motion to veto the recently-passed amendments to the Slovenian Public Holidays Act, which reverse the cancellation of the annual January 2 non-working public holiday in Slovenia voted under the center-right Janez Janša government in May 2012.

Almost 5 years ago (26-Mar-2012), the then Slovenian Prime Minister, Janez Jansa, announced that his government was considering cutting 2 of the 14 annual Slovenian non-working public holidays as part of an ongoing set of austerity measures. The corresponding legislation was introduced (02-May-2012) and after some accommodations to assuage the reluctance of trade unions (12-May-2012), it was eventually gazetted less than a year later (01-Jun-2012).

The, last week (14-Dec-2016), the Slovenian National Assembly voted to approve amendments to the Slovenian Public Holidays Act, introduced by the Modern Centre Party (SMC) and which, if not vetoed today, will reverse the cancellation of the annual January 2 non-working public holiday voted under the center-right Janez Janša government in May 2012.
