Slovenia prepares to go to the polls


After narrowly avoiding a bailout last year, Slovenia is preparing to vote in a snap parliamentary election on Sunday.

Political novice and son of a national sporting hero Miro Cerar is the frontrunner to become prime minister.

He founded his centre-left SMC party just five weeks prior to the July election.

If Cerar wins, analysts expect his party to enter a coalition government with the Social Democrats (SD) and the Desus pensioner’s party.

Centre-right former Prime Minister Janez Jansa is trailing in the polls after being sentenced to two years in prison over a bribery scandal.
