斯洛文尼亚总理辞职 Slovenian PM Resigns

斯洛文尼亚总理米罗·采拉尔(Miro Cerar)星期三晚上辞职。此前,斯洛文尼亚最高法院裁决,支持一项大型铁路工程的全民公决无效。

采拉尔在给议会的函件中说:“这是压垮骆驼的最后一根稻草。第二轨项目再次受到那些想阻止斯洛文尼亚积极发展的人的打击。我不想参与其中。”

采拉尔计划星期四向总统博鲁特·帕霍尔(Borut Pahor)正式递交辞呈。

斯洛文尼亚选民去年9月投票支持耗资12亿美元、把一条重要铁路线从一座亚德里亚海港口延伸到意大利边界的项目。

但是最高法院裁决,政府不公正地影响选民,使这一项目获得通过,因此必须重新举行公投。

采拉尔说,这条新铁路线对“斯洛文尼亚的发展具有战略意义”。

他还说,他的中间偏左政府2014年执政以来,斯洛文尼亚的经济有了相当大的改观。

斯洛文尼亚原定今年6月举行议会选举,但是采拉尔的辞职可能导致提前举行议会选举。

Slovenia Prime Minister Miro Cerar resigned late Wednesday over a Supreme Court decision nullifying a referendum in favor of a major railroad project.

"This was the straw that broke the camel's back," Cerar said in his resignation note to parliament. "The second track project has been hit by another blow taken by those who want to stop Slovenia's positive development. I don't want to be part of such stories."

He plans to submit his resignation to President Borut Pahor Thursday.

Voters in September approved the $1.2 billion project to extend a key rail line from an Adriatic port to the Italian border.

But the Slovenian Supreme Court ordered a new vote, saying the government unfairly influenced voters to approve the project.

Cerar said the rail line would be of "strategic importance for the development of Slovenia."

Cerar says his center-left coalition is leaving the country in much better economic shape than it was when it took power in 2014.

Parliamentary elections are set for June, but Cerar's resignation may move them up.
