For many in Slovenia, it was the last straw. The government had long been faltering, and then an anti-corruption commission said that both the prime minister and the head of the opposition had failed to properly report their financial assets.
For weeks, the country has been riven by mass demonstrations against corrupt and feckless politicians. The wave of protests began after Ljubljana mayor and opposition leader Zoran Janković was forced to step down late last December. Recent revelations about Prime Minister Janez Janša have intensified the crisis. Several coalition parties have now quit the government.
