Ensuring fiscal responsibility and sustainability must be a fundamental guiding principle of the fiscal rule (the Fiscal Council’s answer to the STA question)
Fiscal rules need to be stable and should clearly impose restrictions on the economic policy when it comes to the selection of measures that would lead to excessive deficits and unsustainable levels of the general government debt.
Slovenia has committed itself to establishing the Fiscal Council by ratifying the international Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union, based on which the fiscal rule was integrated into the Constitution in 2013, while in 2015 an implementing act – the Fiscal Rules Act – was adopted.
The Fiscal Council is an independent and autonomous state authority supervising the management of the fiscal policy. Its fundamental task is to monitor the compliance with the fiscal rule, the medium-term balance between revenue and expenditure without borrowing, except in exceptional circumstances, and to monitor the implementation of the EU legislation regulating the economic governance in Member States.
