Slovenia's European election campaign missed any European aspects stated an Austrian newspaper. As in other member states, the financial crisis was a big deal. Moreover, unsolved border issues with Croatia dominated, as usual, the discussions. These problems are not well known within the EU, but postponed accession talks with Croatia this year.
Both countries are arguing mainly about the line of demarcation in Piran bay. This all leads to tension between people from both countries. While some Croatians want to boycott Slovenian goods, Slovenians feel validated in judging the others as arrogant and snobbish.
