LJUBLJANA, May 7 (Reuters) - Slovenia postponed on Tuesday a parliamentary vote on setting a cap on the budget deficit until later in May, after parties failed to agree the terms of the so-called golden fiscal rule.
The euro zone state, which is battling to shore up its finances to avert a bailout, had pledged to set the cap by the end of May but the government and opposition are at odds over when it should be introduced.
The fiscal reform entails changing the constitution, which requires a two-thirds majority in parliament.
