SDS suggests mandatory drug tests for office owners

Ljubljana-The Opposition Democratic Party (SDS) has submitted a bill requiring members of parliament, ministers, secretaries of state, the prime minister, and the president of the Republic to undergo compulsory annual drug tests.

“It is in the public interest to know if Slovenian politicians are taking banned drugs,” the party said at the beginning of the bill.

The party says the bill should be passed to improve transparency and that the secretary-general is responsible to the public.

Those who are required to be inspected are “expected to perform their duties in good faith and impartiality,” he said.

Under the bill, each designated office owner will be tested annually based on a random draw that must be tested within 48 hours.

If they refuse, the test will automatically count as positive.

The test will be conducted in the presence of a four-member committee featuring two representatives of the journalist organization.

The results of the test will be published.
