Slovenia, once the economic poster child of the new EU countries, now finds itself in economic and political chaos.

The government says Slovenia can save itself.

People took to the streets, leading to the resignation of the government.

The country’s elite stands accused of cronyism.

The European Union has given Slovenia two more years to put its finances in order.
