The consensus between the main parties on EU-related reforms will continue, although powerful interest groups and much of the public are likely to resist the fiscal and structural alterations required to meet the bloc's budgetary and debt criteria. Public support for EU membership has already fallen.

The four-party coalition, led by the Social Democratic Party (SDP), which came to power in December 2011, is showing growing signs of strain. The need to pursue fiscal consolidation will further strain relationships, and heap additional pressure on the minister of finance, Slavko Linic. Public confidence in the political elite will remain low, and social and ethnic tensions are likely to persist.

A general election is not due until December 2015. With economic growth remaining elusive, and the unemployment rate rising, the appeal of fringe parties and extra-parliamentary protest groups will increase.
