Support also decreased for the Left, which polled at 6.4% and the Pensioners' Party (DeSUS), which got 3.5%. Meanwhile, the ratings of the government and of parliament remain on the decline.
PM's aide Urlep believes demographic fund will need to invest abroad too
LJUBLJANA - Vojmir Urlep, a top aid to PM Marjan Šarec, told Dnevnik that the planned demographic fund will not be able to relieve the state budget of its burdens and fully cover the fast rising pension system costs. Additional measures will be needed, including an overhaul of the state asset management strategy. Asked whether the fund should also partly operate as a state fund, meaning also invest in foreign securities and holdings and manage such an investment portfolio, Urlep said no coalition agreement had been reached on this so far. He personally feels this will necessary and "will only be possible with a smart investment policy that will need to go beyond the scope of the domestic environment".
