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.
