Slovenia

Next week it should be clear whether Marjan Šarec would be the new Slovenia’s Prime Minister. The Total Slovenia News informs that “if he musters an absolute majority in the secret ballot, he will be expected to submit his cabinet to parliament by September 1st”.

Then Mr. Šarec will have 15 days to form his cabinet. If the deadline is missed, the National Assembly may set a new one. If that second deadline is not kept then the PM’s term ends. 

On August 2nd, the country’s center-left coalition (five center-left parties) nominated Šarec to become a Prime Minister — following an inconclusive parliamentary election that were held in June. As Reuters commented: “The nomination is expected to end Slovenia’s longest political stalemate since an election”.

Šarec is a 41 years old former comedian. His party list was the second in the parliamentary election.
