Ljubljana – According to initial estimates, today’s liberal green Freedom Movement (Gibanje Svoboda) won today’s parliamentary elections in Slovenia with 35.8 percent of the vote. The Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) of the current Prime Minister Janez Janša finished second with 22.5 percent. According to the APA agency, the ruling group has already acknowledged the defeat, and Janša, whom critics describe as a right-wing populist, will apparently end the government of 2.1 million countries soon.

The Svoboda movement, led by political rookie and former top manager Robert Golob, took part in the parliamentary elections for the first time and immediately won them by a significant margin. If the estimates published by RTV Slovenija are confirmed, the Freedom Movement will gain more knowledge than predicted by election polls. Friday gave him a chance for less than 28 percent of the vote.

On the contrary, the SDS apparently did not make so much mistakes in the SDS. The party predicted about 24 percent of the vote.

The Freedom Movement will probably need coalition partners to form a new government. Their search should be facilitated by the fact that even before the election, a pair of major left-wing parties indicated that they would certainly not cooperate with Janša after the election.

Janš’s critics accuse him of copying the authoritarian style of rule of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and undermining democratic principles. Janša, whose political role models include former US President Donald Trump, denies the allegations.

The Slovenian Parliament has 90 seats. To join the legislature, political parties must exceed four percent of the votes obtained.
