His party was only formed six weeks ago but political newcomer Miro Cerar has led the centre-left SMC to victory in Slovenia’s general election.
Winning 34.8 percent of the vote which translates into 36 of the 90 seat parliament,
Cerar should be able to introduce some stability.
Addressing his supporters the new leader said he was happy that voters realised to such an extent that Slovenia was in need of change. That it was vital to alter the country’s political culture and to adopt a more cooperative stance rather than the politics of division.
