Rather than forming a coalition, the person leading the party with the highest share of the vote in the 2018 elections, Janez Janša, seems to be more interested in making changes to the electoral system.
STA, 11 June 2018 - Slovenian voters cast 2,473 valid general election ballots at diplomatic and consular offices abroad. The largest number of votes, 720, went to the election winner, the Democrats (SDS), while another right-leaning party, New Slovenia (NSi), came second with 438 votes, the National Electoral Commission said on Monday.
Perhaps the best, and certainly most foul-mouthed, commentator on the Slovene political scene in English goes by the name Pengovsky, who published his analysis of the election results just before the weekend.
STA, 7 June 2018 - President Borut Pahor argues in an interview for Primorske novice, published before his post-election meeting today with the relative winner Janez Janša of the Democrats (SDS), that it would be more useful "and easier for everyone if the winner of the election is successful in his effort to form a government".
STA, 4 June 2018 - The general election reactions by some of Slovenia's leading commentators share the concern of major coalition building problems. While some are raising the prospect of a repeat election, the commentaries outline a wide array of different government scenarios.
STA, 4 June 2018 - Sunday's general election in Slovenia brought a clear win for the right-wing Democrats (SDS) along with a substantial fragmentation of the political landscape that heralds major coalition-building problems. Turnout after 99.7% of the votes counted is at 51.9%, 0.2 percentage points above the record low of 2014.
After the removal of Ljudmila Novak from the leadership of the NSi-Christian Democratic Party, the last strong female politician, Alenka Bratušek (SAB), now has a good chance to be ousted by a popular vote. If this happens, all of Slovenia’s leading politicians will be men , and nobody seems to mind.
STA, 1 June 2018 - The market research agency Valicon is careful not to predict the winner of Sunday's election even after its latest public opinion poll, with its boss Andraž Zorko saying that the outcome will be partly decided on Saturday at picnics, family meetings and social networks.
