Former Prime Minister Janša thanked the current members of the Government and those who work with it, who have shouldered a heavy burden, including the challenge of EU leadership. He said they were leaving to the new Government a solid foundation with proven results. “Around 80% of what was planned was also implemented,” Mr Janša said. “We will be glad if at the end of this term of office, beginning today, the results are comparable with the achievements of these past four years.”
