Slovenes reject law to give the 'erased' back their rights
This is deeply troubling; 94% of those who voted rejected the law. Only 4% voted in favour. Turnout was 31%, which seems to imply that it was the supporters of the far-right Slovene National Party and from three conservative parties, who exerted the pressure for this referendum to be held, who mainly voted. It seems that the constitutional court has said the rights should be restored - leaving a stalemate over what will happen next.
Until this is clarified, I think it urgent that the membership of Slovenia in the European Union, scheduled to take effect on 1st May 2004, be suspended at least temporarily. We CANNOT have such a country as an EU member!
