2010 Slovenian public broadcaster law referendum


The reform was an attempt to reverse the reform of 2005 proposed by the conservative Prime Minister Janez Janša, which was widely seen as an attempt to move the public broadcaster Radiotelevizija Slovenija to the right of the political spectrum. The RTVS referendum held that year narrowly approved the reform; polls indicated that the 2010 referendum would also see a close result at low turnout, with only 55.3% of voters interested in the referendum (28.4% to 26.9% in favour of the reform).[3]


The referendum failed clearly, but at a very low turnout, which was interpreted as the Slovenian voters being fed up with the large amount of referendums being held.[4][5]
