Slovenia agrees to hold referendum on border arbitration with Croatia.

By bne IntelliNews March 29, 2010
Slovenia agreed to hold a referendum on the ratification of border arbitration with Croatia . Slovene PM Barout Pahor said that the ratification by the parliament will be followed by a referendum. Last week the Slovenian constitutional court said that the arbitration agreement with Croatia complies with the country?s constitution and thus the bilateral agreement on the border dispute, which hindered Croatia ?s EU negotiations, can be signed. The deal on the border issue, which was signed in November, allowed international arbitration on the border issue. However, the opposition parties in Slovenia disagreed with the reached deal and PM Pahor asked the constitutional court to rule. After the approval by the constitutional court, the ruling parties in Slovenia stated that there was no reason to hold a referendum on the arbitration agreement and stated that the procedure for the ratification of the document in the national parliament could start.
