Decision-making

Printer-friendly version

The decision-making of the National Council is provided by Article 99 of the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia:

  • The National Council may pass decisions if a majority of members are present at the session,
  • The National Council decides with a majority of votes cast by present members.

Decision-making and the manner of voting in the National Council, as well as other procedures concerning the adoption of decisions are provided in detail by Rules of Procedure of the National Council. The National Council decides with the majority of cast votes of present councillors, unless the Constitution or Rules of Procedure of the National Council stipulate a different majority (first paragraph, Article 52 of Rules of Procedure of the National Council).

Decision-making in the National Council is also subject to an exception provided by Article 101 of the Constitution which determines that the National Council adopts its Rules of Procedure with the majority of votes of all members, i.e. 21 councillors.

Voting in the National Council is public, but confidential for matters specified by Rules of Procedure of the National Council or when the majority of present councillors so decide. Confidential voting may be proposed by the President of the National Council, at least eight councillors, or one of the interest groups.
