Slovenia

Yearbook 2011

Slovenia. According to Countryaah official site, Borut Pahor's center-left government worked head-on during the first half of the year. Several ministers jumped off and voters voted down proposed changes in labor law and the pension system in two referendums. By mid-year, two out of four government parties had withdrawn from government cooperation. When a vote of confidence was announced in September, the remaining minority government fell.

2011 Slovenia

No one succeeded in forming a new government within a week and thus became the new election, in early December. The result was an unexpected victory for the center-left party Positiva Slovenia, formed only a few weeks earlier by Ljubljana's mayor Zoran Janković. The party received close to 30% of the vote. The previously tipped winner, former Prime Minister Janez Janša, had to admit to being defeated. His conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) got just under 26%, while Pahor's Social Democratic SD came in third with just over 10.
