Politična kariera

Konec leta 1988 se je še kot absolvent filozofije zaposlil na ZSMS z nalogo izpeljati projekt transformacije ZSM v liberalno stranko. Na volitvah leta 1990 je bil izvoljen za delegata tedanjega družbeno-političnega zbora osamosvojitvene skupščine. Marca 1992 je postal generalni sekretar Liberalne demokracije Slovenije in ostal na tej funkciji do 2001, ko je odstopil. 26. februarja 2002 je bil izvoljen za predsednika sveta LDS. 12. marca 2007 je vstopil v novoustanovljeno društvo Zares. Oktobra 2007 je prevzel vodenje stranke Zares - nova politika. Na državnozborskih volitvah oktobra 2008 je bil izvoljen za poslanca Državnega zbora RS. 11. septembra 2010 je bil ponovno izvoljen za predsednika Zaresa. Na konvenciji stranke 15. oktobra 2011 je prejel zaupnico stranke, s čimer je ohranil svoj položaj predsednika stranke. Na isti konvenciji se je stranka preimenovala v Zares - socialno liberalni.

 

24. novembra 2008 je bil za štiriletni mandat imenovan za ministra za visoko šolstvo, znanost in tehnologijo. 2. junija 2011 je podal odstopno izjavo s položaja ministra za visoko šolstvo, znanost in tehnologijo.

 

Leta 2009 je v zvezi z njim odjeknila afera Ultra. Gregor Golobič je za nekatere časnike v predvolilnem obdobju dejal, da nima nikakršnih lastniških deležev v družbi Ultra, a je junija 2009 priznal, da je informacijo medijem zamolčal. Svoj lastniški delež je leta 2008 ob nastopu mandata poslanca in kasneje ministra prijavil protikorupcijski komisiji, kot veleva zakon. Nekateri slovenski mediji, ki so se sklicevali na podatke Nove Ljubljanske banke so objavili, da ima Ultra za okrog 6,3 milijona evrov nezavarovanih posojil. Razlog, da je Ultra brez zavarovanj prišla do denarja, naj bi bila povezava podjeta z Gregorjem Golobičem. Golobič je ob tem dejal, da je naredil napako in si skupaj s premierom Borutom Pahorjem postavil nekajdnevni rok za razmislek o svojem odstopu z mesta ministra, v katerem pa se za ta korak ni odločil. Na državnozborskih volitvah leta 2011 je kandidiral na listi svoje stranke.

ENG:

 

Gregor Golobič (born January 20, 1964) is a Slovenian politician. Since 2007, he has been serving as president of the left liberal party Zares. Between November 2008 and June 2011, he served as Minister for Science and Higher Education of Slovenia.

 

Golobič was born in the Slovenian town of Novo Mesto, then in former Yugoslavia. He attended the prestigious Novo Mesto Grammar School. He enrolled at the University of Ljubljana, where he studied philosophy. In 1988, already as a student, he became employed by the Alliance of Socialist Youth of Slovenia, the youth organization of the League of Communists of Slovenia. Between 1992 and 2001, he served as the Secretary-General of the ruling Liberal Democracy of Slovenia.

 

In 2001 Golobič left politics. In 2002 he obtained his BA in philosophy from the University of Ljubljana with a thesis on a Lacanian critique of the philosophy of Cratylus. In 2006 he quit his former party and in October 2007, he was elected president of the newly formed party Zares, formed mostly by former members of the Liberal Democracy. In the 2008 parliamentary elections he was elected in the Slovenian National Assembly. In November of the same year, he was appointed Minister for Higher Education, Sciencae and Technology in the centre left government of Borut Pahor. At the ministry, József Györkös served as a state secretary.

 

On April 21, 2011, he announced his resignation as Minister due to disagreements with the policies of the Prime Minister Borut Pahor. In June 2011, Golobič resigned from his position as Minister of Education. His resignation was followed by other ministers of the Zares party later in the same month, opening a government crisis, which was resolved in September 2011 with the vote of no confidence to Borut Pahor and the calling of early elections in December 2011.
