ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political situation of Slovenia. In a dramatic turnaround, elections on October 3 saw the centre-left Liberal Democrats (LDS) removed from power after 12 years of almost continuous government. The LDS fell back to second place in the parliament with 22.8% of the vote and 23 seats in the 90-seat assembly, down from 36.3% and 34 seats in 2000. Victory went to the centre-right Slovenian Democrats (SDS), who took 29.1% of the vote and 29 seats, up from the 15.8% and 14 achieved last time around. Having initially expressed willingness to consider the inclusion of any of the opposition parties in government, except for the defeated LDS, but including the far right-wing Slovenian National Party (SNS), Jansa(Janez Jansa) has ultimately favoured a deal with the centre-left Pensioners' Party (DeSUS), which figured as a junior partner in the previous government.
