Competences of the National Council
The National Council may exercise a suspensive veto, which means it requires that the National Assembly decide again on a law prior to its promulgation. The National Council may exercise its right of suspensive veto within seven days of the adoption of the law in question.
Before the President of the Republic of Slovenia promulgates a law, the President of the National Assembly sends the text of the adopted law to the President of the National Council. If the National Assembly is asked to decide again, a majority of all deputies is required if the law is to be adopted, unless the Constitution stipulates that a higher number of votes is required for the law in question to be adopted. Any new decision taken by the National Assembly is final.
