Politično delovanje

  • Ministrovanje

Po volilni zmagi Slovenske demokratske stranke v letu 2004, na katerih je Virant tudi sodeloval kot kandidat SDS (kljub temu, da ni (bil) član SDS), je Virant postal vodja novoustanovljenega Ministrstva za javno upravo v vladi pod vodstvom Janeza Janše. Začel je s temeljito reformo javnih služb v Sloveniji, ki vključuje modernizacijo in racionalizacijo storitev. V zadnjih letih Janševe vlade je bil Virant pogosto razvrščen kot najbolj priljubljen minister in eden od najbolj priljubljenih politikov v Sloveniji. Najbolj je znan po t.i. Virantovi reformi plačnega sistema javnih uslužbencev. Po parlamentarnih volitvah 2008, v kateri je Slovenska demokratska stranka izgubila proti koaliciji pod vodstvom socialdemokratskega vodje Boruta Pahorja, je ministra Viranta nadomestila Irma Pavlinič Krebs iz stranke Zares. Sam pa je še eno leto prejemal nadomestilo (ter bil brezposeln še nadaljnje tri mesece), hkrati pa je opravljal honorarno pedagoško delo.

ENG:

 

Gregor Virant (born 4 December 1969) is a Slovenian politician and public servant, currently serving as Minister of the Interior and Public Administration in the government of Alenka Bratušek. Between 2004-2008, he served as Minister of Public Administration in Janez Janša's first government, and between 2011–2013 he was President of the National Assembly of Slovenia. He is the leader of the Civic List, until April 2012 named Gregor Virant's Civic List, a liberal political party established in October 2011 to compete in the 2011 parliamentary election.

 

Political career

Virant resigned from office shortly before the 2004 parliamentary elections, in which he ran as a candidate for the Slovenian National Assembly on the list of the Slovenian Democratic Party. However, he never joined the party.

 

After the electoral victory of the Slovenian Democratic Party in 2004, Virant became the head of the newly created Ministry of Public Administration in the first government led by Janez Janša. He launched a thorough reform of the public service in Slovenia, which included modernization and economizing of the service. In the last years of Janša's government, Virant frequently ranked as the most popular minister and one of the most popular politicians in Slovenia.

 

After the 2008 parliamentary elections, in which the Slovenian Democratic Party lost to the left-wing coalition headed by the Social Democrat leader Borut Pahor, Virant was replaced as minister by Irma Pavlinič Krebs of the Zares party. In December 2008, Virant was elected chairman of the Rally for the Republic (Slovene: Zbor za republiko), a civic platform founded in 2004 to promote classical liberal, patriotic, republican, and liberal-conservative values in Slovenian public life. Between 2009 and 2011, he was also member of the Council of Experts of the Slovenian Democratic Party, the main opposition party's shadow government.

 

In October 2011, he announced he would run for parliament in the 2011 parliamentary election on an independent ticket. According to an opinion poll released soon after the announcement, Virant was seen as the most appropriate choice for prime minister by the plurality of voters.  On 21 October, the Gregor Virant's Civic List was officially chartered as a political party.

 

On 4 December, Virant was elected to the Slovenian National Assembly as the leader of the Gregor Virant's Civic List. On 21 December, with the votes of his list, the Slovenian Democratic Party, the Slovenian People's Party, New Slovenia and the Democratic Party of Pensioners of Slovenia, he became the President of the Assembly, thus defeating the candidate of Positive Slovenia party, Maša Kociper. He succeeded Ljubo Germič. On 24 April, he was reelected as the president of the party.
