The government adopted on Thursday a proposal for amending the Constitution to introduce the golden fiscal rule stipulating that the national budget must be either balanced on in surplus. This is in line with the recent EU agreement on a fiscal pact and is expected to enter into force in 2015. This is in line with the fiscal pact, signed last Friday by all EU member states bar the UK and Czech Republic, which says that extraordinary circumstances are events out of the control of the state or a severe economic depression.

 

Jakov Fak of Slovenia won gold in the men's 20km event at the World Biathlon Championships on Tuesday, finishing ahead of Simon Fourcade of France and Jaroslav Sokoup of the Czech Republic. This is the first world championship or Olympic medal for the Croatian-born Fak since he joined the Slovenian team in 2011.
